It’s time again to participate in March for Babies – a major fundraiser of the March of Dimes.  Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the March of Dimes have a partnership that goes back to the early 1980’s.  Alpha Phi Alpha’s mission is to develop leaders and promote brotherhood & academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. 

Here is an opportunity to serve our community!  Alpha Phi Alpha has asked that all Brothers support the March of Dimes by helping them raise funds.  Once again Xi Lambda Chapter will do that by having a team at the Lakefront Walk on Sunday, April 25th.  The theme for this year is “A Mother of A Movement” and you guessed it – the march is virtual.

Use the following link to make a donation or to register for Xi Lambda’s team:

Thank You!  

You can continue to help by participating in the walk, by soliciting donations from family & friends, or by just making a donation.

Additional information is provided at this site.   You can also contact Ron Kimble at or 773/418-7298.  Thanks for helping us reach our goal and thanks for supporting the March of Dimes. 

Happy Birthday to the April Brothers!
