March For Babies

One day... all babies will be born healthy.

Today... too many moms and families know the heartbreak of having a baby born fighting to survive.

One of our team members, Valerie of ValerieEssentials will be participating in the 5K walk for the March for Babies, sponsored by the March of Dimes on April 25, 2009 in Charlotte, NC.

Here is the link if anyone would like to donate to the March of Babies (March of Dimes) or to Support Valerie. OR if anyone wants to join in the walk!

The money we raise for March for Babies will help:

- support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects

- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby

- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care

- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children

Please help by donating today!

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

Thanks for posting... And it's my second walk that I have done and I'm doing it alone :o( but it's for a great cause! But I'm just now getting into these walks. The first one I did was with my uncle and my aunt (his sis-in-law). It was the Reindeer Romp. It was fun.
