Walk, donate, or do both... we would be honored to have your support! I am so excited to be walking with my Nursing Class of 2017 this year - thank you for supporting me AND them! Please check out our personal story on youtube, search words Byrne Family March of Dimes! Our NICU story is still up from 2011, as is our family story from 2012! (Or copy and paste this link into your browser for the 2012 video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VX4UT5MK6E.) If you are here, you most likely know our story :)
You have also probably cried a few tears with us, and celebrated many joyous moments with us. Thank you! The support you have already shown will never be forgotten. The March of Dimes plays a role in every birth, those which end with babies born healthy, and those of babies born with hurdles. One piece of what the March of Dimes does is research about the causes of premature births and treatment for babies who are born too early. The March of Dimes is one of the reasons Olivia, George, and Samuel are still with us... and doing so well :)
As you might imagine, this is more than a fundraiser for us. This is giving back to the organization that made a difference in our lives... specifically the lives of our three children born between 1 lb 9 oz and 2 lb 12 oz... and that continues to offer support, ongoing research, and education, among other things, to us and so many other families. We hope you will consider one or more of the following: - Make a donation :) - Join us in raising money for babies! - Join us to walk! We want a crowd there on April 23rd showing Beaufort's support for babies. Regardless of what you're able to give, please march with us!
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. We are walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this. The money we raise will go directly to programs and research... and will help to decrease the chances another baby will have to be int he hospital for 14 months, away from his family. Please join us by making a donation to help us reach our fundraising goal. Making a secure donation is easy: just click the 'donate now' button on this page. Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start!
