March of Dimes March for Babies

I figured Tax Day was a good day to ask for your money. I ain't too proud to beg.

On April 27th, we participating in the March of Dimes March for Babies. Every year, half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely. Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many life long disabilities. The funds we raise in March for Babies support research that saves babies' lives. The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

I started participating in the Walk back in college when I was part of Alpha Phi Omega. My sister Katie and brother-in-law Matt continued after graduation. This is their 10th year!! Last year we joined their team and plan on making it an annual tradition. This year Scout will join us in person vs. in utero :). The walk is Sunday, April 27th in St. Paul. Join us if you're in the area.

We would truly appreciate your support. Please consider donating. Even $5 will make a huge difference. Last year we raised over $300! We'd love to beat that this time around. The March of Dimes makes it very easy to donate and it is tax deductible.
