March for Babies

Not to be confused with March Babies Birthday Bash, which is a party that my friends and I have held in our honor since there's seven of us with birthdays in March. (There will be another post about that - **teaser** it's Jersey Shore themed.)

You may have noticed the new widget to the right that has a sweet pea in an oversize hat. That's the link to my fund raising page for March for Babies. It's a 5-miler that I will be walking (no need to over work myself on my first race.) with my friends in loving memory of my friends Mandy & Shane's son Brendhen McVeigh. Brendhen was taken from this world prematurely due to complications from a full placental abruption in the third trimester. Since it is a rare occurrence, the research that March of Dimes - and by extension the fund raising from March for Babies - may be able to prevent this from happening to another family.

Contributing online is fast, easy and secure. You can donate directly from my personal webpage with a credit card or PayPal. If you prefer, I can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box on my webpage.

The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.

Having you support for March for Babies and our team in honor of Brendhen McVeigh is greatly appreciated and means more than you know!
