Get Ready for Rock for Dimes Halifax 2015!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.
Rock for Dimes 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 our Stroke Recovery Canada® and Conductive Education® programs. Last year over $30,000 was raised at Rock for Dimes Halifax, bringing the total raised in Halifax to well over $200,000.
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.
We thank our national sponsors, including Long & McQuade, Airgo Medical, Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund, Sun Media, Agency59 and Vantage Mobility. Please contact us for information about local sponsorship opportunities.
