Why I walk

Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. I'm walking in March for Babies because I want to do something about this.

I didn't know about this day in 2008, but I did participate with my husband and then 2yo daughter Africa in our first March for Babies to raise money and awareness for prematurity. However in 2009 the cause struck closer to my heart and my family as our son Kirikou was born 20 wks to soon. Being so early and under developed we were told there was nothing that could be done for him. He lived for 4 hours after being born. He was a strong baby no matter how small. The short time that he lived raised the love and appreciation for others going through this situation.

In 2010 I hit the streets again raising money for the March for Babies. This time I upped my goal. I have yet to meet it, but there is still time. And I need your help. Please support my walk. Making a secure donation is easy: just click the 'donate now' button on this page. Thank you for helping me give all babies a healthy start!

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.

Fundraising goal: $275
