JJoin the Movement!!!
On behalf of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Epsilon Rho Lambda Chapter, and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Gamma Upsilon Zeta Chapter, we proudly announce that our 3rd Annual Race at Your Pace/Walk will be held at Methodist University at 10 a.m. on June 3, 2023.
Since starting the race two years ago, we have donated more than $20,000 to the March of Dimes March for Babies. Although we are proud of our achievement, there is still much work to do to support health equity for all mothers and babies. Sadly, the U.S. remains one of the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth and prematurity.
We hope you will join us for this worthy cause. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000. We will donate proceeds to the March of Dimes March for Babies and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. With your help, we can reach our goal and positively affect mothers and their babies.
Please feel free to contact the A2Z Committee directly at (910) 364-8700 or email at AToZRace@gmail.com with any additional questions.
Thank you in advance for your support!!!

Proceeds to Benefit the March of Dimes March for Babies
The A2Z Race at Your Pace is a fun run/walk that can be done at any time and any where. It is a great opportunity to join family and friends in raising money for the March of Dimes. For more than 40 years, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., and the March of Dimes have successfully partnered to raise funds to support research, advocate for, programs, and promote health equity for all moms and babies. Unfortunately, according to the March of Dimes, the “U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for women and babies of color.” Because of this continuing need, last year our organizations hosted the Inaugural A2Z Race at Your Pace and donated $10,000 to the March of Dimes March for Babies.
