    Nationally Recognized Sorority to Host Event for Charlotte Babies

    Charlotte, North Carolina, March 26, 2013 —

     Saturday, April 6 the Psi Mu Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. will host a fundraiser for March for Babies. The fundraiser is called, “Zumba for Babies.”  The Zumba class will take place from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at University City Church, located at 7839 Old Concord Road in Charlotte, NC.  A portion of the proceeds will go towards the local March for Babies walk, which is scheduled for April 27 at Uptown Charlotte.

    March for Babies is the largest annual fundraising event for the March of Dimes, More than 4 million babies are born in the United States each year and the March of Dimes has helped each and every one of them through research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.

    In 1973, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. partnered with March of Dimes and created the “Stork’s Nest” prenatal program.  The program was designed to promote prenatal care participation and healthy behaviors during pregnancy through education and incentives. Stork’s Nest is a community-based program for low-income pregnant women.  There are currently over 100 Stork’s Nests throughout the country, reaching more than 5,000 women yearly.

    “Since inception, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has long demonstrated an interest in serving the needs of the community. Spanning the Sorority's partnership with the March of Dimes, Zeta Phi Beta has been at the forefront of anticipating the ever-changing needs of society,” stated Joi Brown, Assistant Treasurer of the Psi Mu Zeta Graduate Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority.  “We have enjoyed partnering with the March of Dimes in an effort to encourage women to seek prenatal care within the first trimester of pregnancy, thereby increasing the prevention of prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality.”

    Throughout the partnership, the Zetas have consistently been recognized as one of the top March for Babies Teams. In the last seven years Zeta members have raised more than $1,170,000 for the March of Dimes.

    “In honor of the 75th Anniversary of the March of Dimes, the Chapter is making plans to maximize our donations through events such as “Zumba for Babies”,” stated Brown. “Interested parties can visit www.zfinerevents.com to register today for the “Zumba for Babies” class.”

    In 2013, the March of Dimes celebrates its 75th Anniversary and its ongoing work to help babies get a healthy start in life.  Early research led to the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines that all babies still receive.  Other breakthroughs include new treatments for premature infants and children with birth defects.  About 4 million babies are born each year in the United States, and all have benefited from March of Dimes lifesaving research and education.
