On Saturday morning, April 30, Texas A&M’s Corps of Cadets will conduct the 40th Annual March to the Brazos in support of the March of Dimes’ efforts to aid children and families in the Brazos Valley.
Over 2,300 cadets will march 18 miles from their dorms in the Quad, through Main campus and West campus, to Texas A&M’s Animal Science Teaching, Research & Extension Complex near the east bank of the Brazos River. Cadets will then participate in various events, have lunch, and return to campus.
March to the Brazos is the largest and most successful student-led fundraiser for the March of Dimes in the United States, raising over $2.9 million between 1977 and 2015. With this year’s contributions the overall total will be pushed over the $3 million mark.
Those interested in supporting the Cadet’s March of Dimes’ efforts can donate by going to Corps of Cadets March to the Brazos and clicking on the Corps of Cadets—March to the Brazos tab.
