March of Dimes....It's that Time of Year again!!

Hey there, I am making a last ditch effort to raise money for the March of Dimes for my upcoming walk on May 1st. If you haven't given to the MOD recently, think of this....

Fifty years ago, the March of Dimes helped to raise money for the funding of the Polio Vaccine!

Many of the tests that newborn babies receive are due to the monies provided by the March of Dimes. EVERY baby benefits from their efforts!

My walk site is HERE You can make a donation online (with a credit card or debit card) and the money will go directly to them!

Thank you so much!

Today in the U.S., 1 in every 8 babies will be born prematurely. Some of them won't survive, and others will have health problems that could last a lifetime. The funds we raise in WalkAmerica support research that saves babies' lives.

Griffin and Erin Byers, my twins, were born at 26 wks. Had it not been for some of the research and developments that March of Dimes has funded, the babies probably would not have done as well as they are now.

The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality.
