March of Dimes: March For Babies

The March for Babies walk is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. The walk is on April 26th, and it's a 3.5 mile walk.

If you are wondering why I think it's such a great cause, here are 3 beautiful reasons:
This cause really hits home for me because I would have had my daughter at 5 1/2 months gestation and my son at 7 months if not for my great OB/GYN (among other things), and thankfully had them only a few weeks early. My friend's son was born 3 months early and because of good hospital staff and the March For Babies, he's a happy healthy 4 year old. The last 2 times I was able to do the walk since his birth, I was pregnant and on bed rest to prevent my own premature deliveries, so I'm really excited to walk proudly with both of my healthy children.

If anyone would like to help me reach my goal and donate to this great cause, you can click on the link to the right. You can donate any amount on the right hand side of the page.

Here's where your money would be going:
"77% of every dollar supports research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And your funds are used to bring comfort and information to families whose baby was born too soon, or sick."

Any donation amount is appreciated! It truly is a great cause.
