Why I walk

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. As a respiratory therapist in the NICU at St. Joseph's Hospital, I provide care to the premature babies and I see everyday the difficulties they go through. My baby brother Nathan passed away when he was only 5 months old from a birth defect that affected his brain and caused seizures. I walk in memory of those babies who have passed, in honor of those still fighting, and in hope of stopping premature birth. Please help these babies with your donation.


Your gift matters

Funds raised in March for Babies support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And they will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
