Why we walk
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this. I know you care, too. That's why I'm asking you to join us. It's easy: just click the join this team button.
If you can't walk with us, please help by donating to our team. You can do so right on this page. Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start!
We are walking in honor of Nicholas. Nicholas was born 4 months early at only 24 weeks gestation. Research by the March of Dimes saved his life. March of Dimes funded research leading to the use of surfactant to treat respiratory distress syndrome(RDS). Without surfactant, his lungs would not have developed. Nicholas suffered so many of the possible preemie problems it is a true miracle he is here and doing so well. He will have life long difficulties from being born so early and has already gone through 19 surgeries. The March of Dimes is working to make sure all babies are born healthy and we couldn't be happier to support such a great organization. Please come walk with us or consider making a donatin in honor of our little miracle Nicholas.
