On Friday, Febuary 4, the Maxwell FBLA chapter held its annual Dash-for-Cash fundraiser at the Maxwell High School basketball game vs. Chester.  This fundraiser is to help the March of Dimes organization. March of Dimes is a non-profit organization that helps to prevent birth defects and promotes a healthy childhood and youth.  FBLA is the largest youth volunteer source for March of Dimes.  This year, with the help of Maxwell basketball fans, FBLA raised $108.  Ashley Azevedo won, but chose Liam deWit as her dasher.  Liam collected $22 in twenty-five seconds. Ashley generously gave Liam $11 for his hard work, while donating the other half back.  Maxwell FBLA, along with their sponsor Blue & Gold, will donate $108 to the March of Dimes organization.  Maxwell FBLA would like to thank the fans for their donations, Blue & Gold for their sponsorship, and March of Dimes for their very important and worthwhile contributions to America’s youth. ■
