March 22, 1995
SUBJECT: March of Dimes WalkAmerica
I am pleased to announce that UCSD will be participating in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica on April 29, 1995. WalkAmerica is the March of Dimes' primary fund-raising event; this year marks the 25th anniversary of WalkAmerica. Proceeds from the annual event benefit a wide range of research and treatment programs for birth defects. Several units at UCSD have received support from the March of Dimes including the Department of Biology and the neonatal unit at the medical center. In 1994, our neighbor, the Salk Institute, received nearly $1.5 million in funding from the organization. There are two locations for the walk--- at the Sea World East Parking lot and in Carlsbad at Holiday Park (Chestnut Street and Pio Pico Avenue). The official start time is 7:00 a.m. with both a 7 mile and a 12 mile route at each site. Each registered walker will receive a T-shirt which will identify you as a "UC San Diego Team Walker."
I urge you get out and walk. Past participants have been very enthusiastic about the experience and describe it as a fun family affair. Entry forms and sponsor sheets are available from the following individuals; please contact them for more information concerning the event.
