Why I walk

No baby should be born too soon, too small and or very sick -- just like our son Jake was more than 12 years ago -- or with birth defects or unknown medical problems that cause great hardships or unexpected deaths -- just like what happened to Sawyer more than 8 years ago. We March for Babies every year because we NEED to change this. No family should have a baby born at 26 weeks, like Jake was, and no family should kiss their child goodnight and never get to kiss them good morning the next day like what happened with Sawyer. We need your help.

Please come walk with us and support our fundraising efforts. Every $ makes a difference, and every $1 = $2 due to a generous match by Northside Hospital. The March of Dimes uses the funds on key research, education and outreach programs. But we need your support. Nothing is more important than having healthy babies. 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! And thank you for helping us honor and remember Jake and Sawyer's far-too-short lives.


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.
