march for babies 2009

Last year, we were humbled by the generous support that we received from our friends and family to walk in the March of Dimes, March for Babies. So, this time around, we decided to set a bigger goal, and ask that you not only sponsor our team with your donation, but that you also consider giving your time.

In addition to our monetary goal of $5,000, our other goal this year is to recruit 112 walkers to join our family team, Two Early.

112??? Are you serious?

After the longest months of our lives, we finally had BOTH Owen and Eliot home - after 112 days.

This year, as we watch in awe how our twins have progressed since their scary roller coaster journey through the NICU, we want to celebrate the 112 days of fighting and thriving by having one person represent each of their days in the hospital.

Join our team, Two Early, so you can help the March of Dimes continue its fight. Walk with us on April 25th and support babies around the country - those born prematurely or with a birth defect; babies who didn't survive; and healthy, full-term babies, as well.

There's a place for everyone. So, put on your sneaks, and grab your spouse, partner, friends, neighbors, kids, and walk with us - five miles around the beautiful city of Atlanta. When you arrive back at Centennial Park, there will be music, dancing, food, and games and toys for the kids. It is one huge celebration.

To be a part of Team Two Early, email me for more information, visit our team site, or simply click the purple banner to the right to sign up or donate. If you can't join us for the walk, please consider sponsoring our team with a donation. Every dollar makes a difference.

Thank you so much for your support.
