Once again, TEAM DAKOTA is back and better than ever. We will be raising money and walking again this year in honor and memory of Dakota Everett Schmidt! Each year our team has become bigger in members as well as money raised. Please help us attain our 2017 goal of raisning $10,000. 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.
