No you don't need a sponsor to do the walk..as of now I do not have a sponsor but I am still walking with my team. I plan on sponsoring myself. The money goes towards research to help find a cure for premature birth. As of now they are not really sure why so many babies are born too early. We walk to thank our sponsors, also to thank the the March of Dimes for doing this research. So no you do not need a sponsor to do this walk. Just being there gets the message out that this is a growing problem and we are on the March towards a cure.
So if you would like to walk that is great!!!! If you want to get people to sponsor you go to the March of dimes web site for the information, you can go door to door collecting or have it set up online. If you do it online then the money goes directly to the March of Dimes not to you, this way you do not have to worry about sending in any money.
