ABOUT THIS EVENT
 
Welcome to March for Babies Gloucester County. Join us for a 5K walk and Run through the beautiful Rowan University Campus. Join us at the Start/Finish in the Stadium Parking Lot C for a fun filled event. Across South Eastern Pennsylvania & Southern New Jersey, thousands of people walked at March for Babies events and raised close to 2 million dollars. The March of Dimes signature fundraiser, March for Babies, is an event that brings walkers, volunteers and sponsors together to celebrate their community. Coworkers, families, friends and celebrities participate to fight premature birth and give more babies a healthy start. Each year, about 20,000 companies and 3 million people take part in nearly 500 communities across the country.

Team Raylan and Westen

 
The Baldissero Story On January 1st, 2013, the twins were born at 27 weeks gestation at Lourdes Hospital in Camden. Raylan, twin A, weighed 2 pounds, 12 ounces. Westen, twin B, weighed 2 pounds, 4 ounces. The twins were in incubators, intubated, had wires, IVs, and monitors all over the place, but all we saw were two little souls ready to meet the world with a full on fight for their lives. Raylan seemed to be getting comfortable with his incubator world. Westen had a different kind of disposition. He was feisty. Kicking all the time, tangling his wires and IVs, making his monitors alarm, and keeping his nurses on their feet. We quickly learned how grave our situation could be when Westen’s movement caused his ventilator to come lose. For the first time, Westen was able to breath on his own; however, it did not last long. His blood levels began to drop, his skin became transparent, and his usual feisty movement ceased to exist. It was at this point, the doctors decided to give Westen a blood transfusion. This decision saved his life. In the weeks and months that followed both boys progressed at a rate that was to be expected. My husband and I spent mornings, afternoons, and nights holding the boys for hours on our chests. We reached preemie milestones; decreasing pressured breaths, even if it was only by one digit, holding their own body temperature, and taking a bath without being wrapped in a towel. With each milestone we were closer to bringing the boys home and after 81 long days our little Westen came home and 5 days later our strong boy Raylan followed. This is why we participate in the March of Dimes. We are thankful for all the families before us that contributed their time and efforts to the March of Dimes, for we know our boys’ success was in part due to the research and technology that was funded before their births. By being here advocating for the March of Dimes we are advocating for those that are too tiny to advocate for themselves, and that is what keeps our experience alive; knowing that we can help those babies who, just like Raylan and Westen, seem so small, yet are so strong.
