Please join the fight for the health of all moms and babies by supporting your child’s participation in March of Dimes’ WonderWalk fundraising event.
For decades, schools conducted WonderWalk in person with a group mini walk around school grounds, often on Halloween. The past 2 years we included a virtual option to fundraise and remains open to create fundraising options for families. It is a fun way for children to get involved, learn the spirit of volunteerism and helping others.
Begin by clicking JOIN and create your child’s online fundraising page under the school’s team, shown above. You and your child can use that page to fundraise and earn a free, LIVE, virtual cooking class for raising $25 or more. Your family is encouraged to start fundraising as soon as today and you can continue through November 30th.
For over 80 years, dating back to the pioneering of a life-saving vaccine for polio, March of Dimes has always risen to face daunting challenges. By joining WonderWalk you are supporting March of Dimes’ efforts to end preventable maternal death and morbidity, premature birth and increase health equity. You are stepping up during this public health crisis, at a time when it is still urgently needed. Thanks to volunteers like you, March of Dimes can develop new programs and resources to help families during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
In addition to the school fundraiser event this fall, some fun virtual fundraising ideas families can try at home with parental supervision include:
Downloading and using the fundraising tools on our March for Babies App to share your child’s personal online fundraising page that you created under your school’s team on MarchforBabies.org
Hosting a Purple Day in honor of Prematurity Awareness Month (November) or World Prematurity Day (November 17) at home via Zoom or other social media platforms. Participants can dress up in purple and have fun
Hosting a sing-a-thon or a Hula Hoop-a-thon. Ask people to sponsor you with a donation to your personal fundraising page
Thank you for stepping up during this challenging time, and most especially for your support and generosity, which helps March of Dimes end preventable premature birth and infant and maternal mortality. The cause for nearly half of all premature births is unknown. It can happen to any family.
Every New York City public school student has a DOE account. It is created automatically when you enroll in school. Your DOE account stays the same the entire time you are in school, and with it you can access all DOE technology platforms. Platforms include:
Google for Education,
Your school must give you your username and a password. Once you have these, you can start signing into DOE applications.
Your school may give you a generic password. If so, we recommend you reset the password yourself, to something unique. This will give you more safety and security. Instructions on how to reset your own password are below.
The best way to start using your DOE account is to sign into TeachHub. From here, you can access all DOE applications with one click, and you only need to sign in once.
Resetting Your Password
There are three different ways you can reset your DOE password:
Reset it yourself through the Student Self-Service tool.
Go to the left menu bar, and click on Pin Reset (this applies for creating a new PIN).
Enter a PIN.
Confirm your PIN by entering it again.
Click on Save Changes.
That’s it. An email will be sent to your DOE account to confirm you created a PIN.
Please note that PINs are optional for your DOE account. However, if you do not create a PIN, you will not be able to use the self-service tool to reset your password. If you feel like it would be hard to remember your PIN, or you are the parent of a young student, we recommend resetting your password through NYCSA.
Like a PIN, security questions are, by default, not set up. You must set them up.
