Why we walk
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon. They are often very sick, and some are born so soon that they don't make it. But no one ever imagines that it's going to be them, or their babies, until it is. And then it's too late. Please help me raise money for the march of dimes to fund research to keep this from happening to any other families, even yours.
Please join our team and walk in memory of Emilyn and Hailey! All of you are scattered across the United States, so we won't all be able to walk together, but you can change the event to a location that is closer to you and walk there as a part of our team!
Here is our story in video.
Our donation amounts are special numbers to us.
13 is the number of ounces that Emilyn and Hailey weighed
20 is the number of weeks I held them safe in my belly
38 is the number of weeks their little brother Elim was held safe and in my belly thanks to treatments that were backed by march of dimes research
282 is the number of weeks between when we held our little girls and this year's walk
