March for Babies held at MSSU

The Joplin March for Babies was held on Oct. 22 at Fred G. Hughes Stadium.

The event – which was held for the first time on the Missouri Southern campus – was presented by the university’s chapter of Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda. Since 1970, the annual event has raised more than $2.5 billion, with all funds used to support the March of Dimes’ mission to improve the health of babies.

“The March of Dimes is the national charity for FBLAPBL,” said Stu Dunlop, marketing/management professor and adviser for the Missouri Southern chapter. “Our students found out the walk wasn’t being held in Joplin on a formal basis and decided to reintroduce it.”
