March of Dimes support grows

To the editor:

I want to thank everyone in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and throughout the United States who donated and sponsored me in the Wheeling March of Dimes March for Babies (formerly Walk-America) on April 28. I raised $6,518 this year for the March of Dimes.

With everyone’s support, I have been able to raise more than $134,405 in the last 29 years for the March of Dimes. I also have been the top collector in the Ohio Valley, the state of West Virginia and a large portion of Ohio in the last 29 years

My new long-term goal is to collect $150,000.

The March of Dimes is the best way I know to help prevent birth defects and infant mortality.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Jim Pryor
