NEO’s Phi Beta Lambda raises $1,000 for March of Dimes

Miami, Oklahoma - Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014 - Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, (NEO) students who are members of Phi Beta Lambda, (PBL) a college business club raised more than $1,000 for the March of Dimes. The organization’s mission is to help moms have full-term pregnancies, and research the problems that threaten the health of babies.

This year PBL conducted three large fundraisers: chili feed, pie auction (pies donated by Buttered Buns), and the March for Babies led by Ezra Brown, son of Cassie and Will Brown, who was PBL’s poster child, having survived being born at 25 weeks.

History

  • The March of Dimes was established by FDR to fight polio.
  • The mission focus was shifted to premature birth and birth defects.
  • Research breakthroughs have helped save thousands of babies.
  • A president's cause changed babies' lives forever

Fighting premature birth

Since 2003, March of Dimes’ fight to save babies has been strongly characterized by their Prematurity Campaign. The rising incidence of premature birth has demanded action, and the March of Dimes has responded by initiating an intensive, multi-year campaign to raise awareness and find the causes of prematurity, according to the organization’s website.

NEO’s PBL adopted the month of November as campus-wide Prematurity Awareness month. The club educated the campus by plastering posters around campus. They also invited speakers (Cassie and Will Brown) to share their experience with premature birth.

It is never too late to join PBL at NEO A&M College. PBL can help provide great leadership skills, knowledge and understanding of today’s business world. For more information please contact Mrs. Pat Creech at pcreech@neo.edu or call (918) 540-6294.
