Why I march

Ah, once again the registration took longer than the walk will!

Welcome back, CIDU friends! Since the national walk coincides with a family vacation this year, I'll be walking in Chicago -- and my son Aaron, who started this with me back in 1993, will be alongside me.

And for the past 15 years, you guys have been alongside me in spirit, as my main sponsors. Last year you kept alive the incredible streak of donating more each year than the year before. I know that can't go on indefinitly (especially since people are still finding their way back to CIDU after January's disaster), but... whatever we collect will help the cause.

If you don't want your name to appear as a contributor, there's an option for that. Or you can donate in the the name of the @#$% Squirrel.

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: $1,313

This should take you within $100 bucks of your goal. If you don't make it in two weeks, I'll come back and make up the difference. You're golden! Thanks for all your excellent work with CIDU.
