In keeping with the club’s National Community Service Project, they are focusing on the March of Dimes, raising money and awareness of premature births.

World Prematurity Day is scheduled for Wednesday, November17. Westview FBLA members began walking November 3 and will continue taking pledges and donations for miles walked until November 19.

Kimberly Elliott, the FBLA advisor, says the members are motivated by startling statistics.

“Preterm birth and its complications are the largest contributors to infant death in the United States and globally. This urgent health crisis is significantly fueled by the health equity gap in our health care system today,” she noted.
