Why I walk

My name is Amelia Keppel and I am a 6th grader at the Baltimore Lab School. I was born two months too soon. When I was in the NICU, there were many tubes connected to my body to help me survive. The following video will help you understand more about the struggles I’ve gone through because of my prematurity and how I face those challenges.


I hope you liked the video. Please join the fight for healthy babies by donating to my March for Babies team, La Famiglia di Amelia at www.marchforbabies.org/ameliakeppel.. And come walk with us on Sunday May 7 in the Baltimore walk starting near Canton Park with a path along the waterfront.

Thank you for your support.

La Famiglia di Amelia

Amelia, Bob, Christy, Maddie and Tess Keppel
