Rock For Dimes Halifax

Get Ready for the 10th Anniversary of
Rock for Dimes Halifax!

Rock for Dimes is a corporate battle of the bands held to benefit March of Dimes Canada's programs and services for children and adults with disabilities. Amateur musicians compete in this friendly fundraiser for the title of their city's best corporate band. Bands can showcase their talents in front of a roster of Canadian music industry professionals.

This event has become March of Dimes Canada's flagship national fundraiser and is now held in communities coast to coast. Since its inception, Rock for Dimes has raised over $1,200,000 to support March of Dimes Canada's many programs and services for children and adults with physical disabilities. Funds raised at Rock for Dimes Halifax will benefit March of Dimes Canada's Conductive Education program. To date, Rock for Dimes Halifax has raised $243,700 and our goal for 2015 is to raise another $35,000 for the 10th Anniversary! Please come out and support this great cause and enjoy a fantastic night of music in your community.

Proceeds from Rock for Dimes Halifax 2015 will benefit March of Dimes Canada's Conductive Education® (CE) Nova Scotia Program, an innovative program that blends elements of education and rehabilitation to improve the independence, mobility and confidence of children with disabilities, and has proven especially beneficial to children with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and developmental apraxia.
