Why I walk

Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. My daughter, Naya Jane Manalo, was one of these very sick babies who passed away way too young.

Naya lived only 7 weeks, but in that time, she touched our hearts and put up a valiant struggle to survive. To honor Naya's birth and short life, we invite you to join our team and raise funds to help March of Dimes efforts to give every baby a healthy start. Over the last 5 years, our team has raised over $60,000 and we are hoping to continue this trend! We have also met many friends along the way and also walk in honor of their babies.

In 2015, we were given the honor of being the Bay Area March for Babies ambassador family, which helped progress our cause even further as we organized the walk through the Village of Arroyo Grande. Please join us for what will be another wonderful walk in this revitalized tradition on the Central Coast!

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start in memory of Naya.


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: $10,000
