March for Babies 2013

March of Dimes, March for Babies is celebrating over 75 years of raising money and support to help premature babies and infants with illnesses. Since 1970, they have raised over $2 billion dollars to this cause. And while many children have survived thanks to their efforts and donations there are several children who are born prematurely or with health issues who do not get to live for very long... despite all our technological advancements and medical achievements.

Children are a innocent and precious asset, one that is sometimes discarded or under-appreciated. And while March of Dimes cannot protect them from all the hardships of the world... they are at least trying to help every baby to grow up healthy. And I think no matter what your political or religious views/values are... I think we can agree that their cause is one we can all unite on.

Today in downtown Fort Worth's Trinity Park, our family joined the 3.5 mile long walk to support March of Dimes March for Babies.

Even our babies are fighting for babies. Made my heart smile a bit.

And Bell Helicopter provided lots of support for the walkers and included a kind of reception at the finish line.

While the walk here in Fort Worth is over, you can still find a walk at a location near you by clicking HERE. 

Or if you would prefer you can always send a donation by clicking HERE.

It's never too late to make a difference.
