Walking for Preemies

Hello all,

Kristin and I are participating in WalkAmerica this year because we believe in the March of Dimes mission to save babies. We truly believe that with all of our help we can find a cure for prematurity. The reason that we believe in this so much is because we have seen first hand how research can help to save a baby’s life. We witnessed our own miracle two years ago when our daughter, Ashlynn, was born 15 weeks premature. We were told several times that because of how small she was and how sick she was that she most likely would not survive. But thanks to many prayers and some incredible new research, our Ashlynn is still alive and thriving!

The money we raise helps save premature and sick babies. Premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death and the biggest threat to babies' health today, and through WalkAmerica, the March of Dimes is funding important research to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it.  We've joined with millions of compassionate people across the country that supports WalkAmerica each year. Visit our webpage at http://www.walkamerica.org/Imanangel1981.

If you would like to participate in the walk, you can set up our own family group, join ours or even an organization that is sponsoring March of Dimes, you can find all of this information at www.marchofdimes.com

With your support, there's hope.
