Why I walk

Every year, half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely. Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many life long disabilities. The funds we raise in March for Babies support research that saves babies' lives.

Thank you to everyone that is supporting me and TEAM CHD!! Every little bit helps and is appreciated! Can't donate at this time? I would love it if you passed on my web page to your friends and family! Join us in walking by clicking on the team name and then "Join this Team"! Not in Chicago? You can join TEAM CHD and walk ANYWHERE!!

My cousin's son, Jackson, was born on September 12, 2006, with a congenital heart defect called HLHS, and passed away on June 20, 2007, after fighting for 9 months and 8 days. Visit Jackson's web site at:

My goal for 2018 is to get (at least) 100 people to donate just (at least) $5 each! Can you spare just FIVE LITTLE DOLLARS to help me save the babies? If you can't, I am asking you to pass along my donation page to find a "replacement" sponsor! Or, ask 5 of your friends or family members for $1 to total a $5 donation! Do you have 20 quarters in your change jar at home? That's $5!
