UF March of Dimes Collegiate Council
Join us at Flavet Field on November 16th for our Sixteenth year of walking!
In the past years, the Gators have been declared national champions in both football and basketball. We have proven time and time again that when faced with a challenge, we stand alone as winners. Now our team is faced with a new battle...the battle against prematurity. Currently 1 in every 10 babies is born prematurely and the numbers are rising! Just like the UF athletes need your support as fans, we desperately need your help to fight and conquer this epidemic.
The March of Dimes Collegiate Council at UF was established 15 years ago. Its purpose is to be a collegiate fundraiser for all students, alumni and staff to support the March of Dimes' effort to help all babies have a healthy and full term birth. In the past 15 years, MODCC has grown to over 1,500 yearly participants and has raised nearly $700,000 for the March of Dimes.
This year, the annual MODCC walk/run will take place in December on the University of Florida campus. You can help future Gator Babies have the winning change for a healthy birth by simply raising money and walking or running at the 5K.
