Why I walk

No baby should be born too soon, too small and or very sick -- just like our son Jake was more than 13 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 9 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 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

By raising funds for March for Babies, you’re building a brighter future for moms and babies everywhere. You’re helping March of Dimes advocate for policies to protect them, support radical improvements to the health care they receive and empower families with programs, knowledge and tools. Every dollar you give today makes a real difference in your community and across the country.

Fundraising goal: $30,014
