Transcript Franklin D. Roosevelt was 39 years old when he contracted polio at his summer home in Canada. It would eventually cripple both his legs and make unassisted walking an impossibility. In the depths of the Great Depression, Roosevelt had presidential aides posted on either side of him for support. He displayed resolve and strength while trying to project an image of a healthy, vigorous president. However, the country was crippled itself. In 1938, he established the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis in the hopes that it would find a cure for polio. In response, millions of Americans mailed dimes to the White House — which arrived in jars, envelopes or whatever the donor could find. Such generosity prompted the foundation to adopt the name "March of Dimes" and 65 years later, it remains. This year, the local Gulf Coast chapter chose the University of Houston as the site of its April 13th march. Walkers were encouraged to bring as many dimes as possible and, as they navigated the route, drop them in various barrels. "It was a wonderful sight;' said Nan Varoga, media spokeswoman for the March of Dimes Gulf Coast chapter. "Everyone from the students to the faculty ~ our walkers really enjoyed it!* Walkers enjoyed a thunderous parade before setting off from Roberson Stadium. They hit Cullen Boulevard, swung around Braes Bayou and finally cut through the campus on their way back to the stadium. Aside from a few student parking difficulties earlier in the week, the event went off without a hitch. continued on page 31 alkers wave to onlookers during the March of Dimes Walk-A-Thon April 1 3.
