Important Update

Our March for Babies celebration is still on, but it looks a little different! We are rapidly preparing for a new, virtualized event that will be fun and engaging for everyone. This change in format aligns with the newly released CDC guidance for large events, to help ensure the safety and health of our participants. More details on our new format to come soon!

2022 Ambassador Families

 

 

Schmierer and Corona Families

Emily is finishing her senior. She is the Girls Field Hockey Captain, FFA Chapter Reporter, the ASB School President, and is serving a year of volunteerism as Miss Fallbrook 2021-2022. Charlize is a sophomore; she has a 4.30 and takes AP classes. She plays for a travel softball and plays varsity softball for her high school. These two thriving high schoolers have more in common than their extracurricular involvement; they’re also a part of the 2022 San Diego March for Babies Ambassador Families. Charlize was born with gastroschisis and spent two months in the NICU. This birth defect is a birth defect of the abdominal wall. This disease is rare, it occurs in approximately 1 in 5,000 live births. Emily was born at 31 weeks and spent five weeks in the NICU after her mom was diagnosed with Oligohydramnios which refers to amniotic fluid volume that is less than expected for gestational age. Be sure to click on the PDFs below to read their families full stories. Our Ambassador Families are supported by First 5 and Kimble and Company.
