Kelly & Jason Bench

Why I walk

In February of 2014, we were excited to learn we would be expecting  our first child in October. When Kelly's water broke at 25 weeks doctors tried everything to keep her from delivering early. At 28 weeks (3 month early), labor could no longer be stopped and we welcomed Dayton Wells Bench into the world. He weighed 2lbs 14oz and measured just 15 inches long. Dayton spent 49 days in the NICU at TMH before coming home!

Today, Dayton is a happy, energetic 3 year old, who loves music, first responder cars & trucks and playing golf with his Daddy!

We are passionate about raising awareness about the long-term effects of prematurity on a young family and the importance of ending the many causes of premature birth. We believe all babies should have a fighting chance at life!! Please join out efforts!

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: $2,014
