Last weekend I was very honored to participate in my second March for Babies Walk. The March of Dimes Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. Since I myself was a premature baby, and since I have friends that have had premature babies, the cause is very important to me. I had a great time participating last year, so I knew that I would want to get involved again. This time around, the experience was even more special because I got to walk with not only some very dear friends of mine, but also my dad!
This year, the walk was held at City Park in Edmonds. When we arrived, the weather was cloudy and chilly, but the sun quickly peeked out and we had great weather for the duration of the walk. And our team, Ounces of Love, was very successful this year – we raised over $2500!
Thank you to all who donated to this great cause! My page is still taking donations, so if you’d like to help out March of Dimes, go here and donate today!
