March for Babies ~ Team Kaleb

We are participating in March for Babies because we believe in the March of Dimes mission to save babies.

Please support our fundraising efforts by sponsoring us in March for Babies today. The 10k walk is on April 26, 2008 in downtown Denver. The money raised 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 March for Babies, the March of Dimes is funding important research to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it.

We have joined forces with our friend Lisa. Her nephew was born on December 1, 2007 ~ 12 weeks early. To honor Kaleb and all that he has been through, we are walking as "Team Kaleb". I posted his picture below:

Won’t you please help us in this worthy cause? Brandon and I set our combined goal as $50. A very achievable goal, I think. Visit one of our web pages and sponsor us in the march that saves babies! With your support, there’s hope.

P.S. this is our first-ever attempt at a 10k (that's like over 6 miles!), so if anything, just wish us luck!!!

OK, so I went to the M of D site and sponsored both of you and nothings appearing. Oh well - the check's in the mail. Should be there by the first of next week. It should help to cover your combined goal. I love M of D! Go Barb and Brandon - you're going to be the best walkers there! Love Mom
