Our family is doing something new this year. In May we will be participating in the Walk for Babies. The money raised from the walk will help NICU's with their ability to do different kinds of therapy for preemies, also it will provide counsil and info to parents with babies in the NICU. This is something very close to my heart and when i was asked to do it i was glad for the chance to help. i'm also looking forward to the twins being involved in this way, since they were preemies. The walk is May 1st at Greenfield Corporate Center. 11:00 is registration, then a 'parade' of sorts for all kids and adults that were preemies. The twins will be involved in this, and they even get a medal for graduating from the NICU. I will most likely cry. Then the walk starts at 12:00. It's a 3 mile walk, rain or shine!
There's a great website for our team, called Team Miracles. You can check it out at www.marchforbabies.org/s_team_page.asp?SeId=1459085&si You can scroll down and click on my individual page. My goal is to raise $500. If you'd like to help out, you can do so directly from my page. We'd appreciate any donations, no matter the amount. We'd also love to have more walkers, so let me know if you'd like to participate with the walk itself.
The 'captain' of our team are the Shellenberger's. About 18 months ago i posted on here that they had twins born at 25 weeks (over 3 months early). I saw them Monday and they are walking, babbling, happy, and the cutest little toddlers. Our team is full of miracles, hence the name!
If you're looking for an excuse to go out to eat, next Monday the 21st Friendly's Restaurant in Centerville is helping us raise funds, by donating 10% of your bill directly to our team. Just tell your waitress. The hours of the fundraiser are from 5-8pm.
