The name was also changed to "March for Babies." You can read all about the history here, but I just wanted to remind you that the MARCH FOR BABIES takes place in April at a park (or walking trail) near you, so if you know of anyone who could benefit from your kind donation, don't hesitate to contact them and volunteer to sponsor them with a monetary gift of your choosing. Or better yet... do the walk yourself!
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.
I did the walk last year with my youngest son, his wife, and their 2 year old (then) twins. The twins were born 8 weeks premature.
Here are some pictures from the walk ( I did a post last year, but just want to remind you how important it is) last year.
She doesn't look like a very happy miracle, but she really had a great time.
We walked around the marina. It was a gorgeous day!
