Why I walk

Historically March of Dimes has done so much to save lives all around the world. From developing live-saving vaccinations to funding medical research focused on pregnancy and babies. It is important work. Each year I continue to walk in memory of James. So many families,more than I ever realized, are faced with the reality of pregnancy and infant loss and it is heartbreaking to think about. I created this team three years ago because I believe in this foundation and their mission to support families who are affected by sickness, unexpected crisis, and loss. Money that is raised goes to support the local community it is raised in, which is so wonderful. After James' death I wanted to make sure that I and those familiar with our family, our story would be changed for the better. I wanted his existence to mean something and to have an effect on this world and walking in the March for Babies is one way we celebrate his life, his existence. Thank you so much for supporting our family each year in remembering James. Making a secure donation is easy: just click the 'donate now' button on this page and feel free to donate as much or as little as you can, every dime helps :) Again, so many thanks!


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.
