BENEFITING: March of Dimes Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
March of Dimes mission is improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and premature birth and reducing infant mortality rates. The money raised as a part of this effort will help fund research to identify the causes of premature birth and the ways to prevent it, support families with a premature baby in natal intensive care, and to help women have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.
While my family has been blessed with healthy babies, several of my close friends have suffered the devastation and heartache of losing a baby in their family. On October 11th, I will be running the Staten Island half marathon in their memory and hope to raise $1,000 to support the March of Dime mission.
Please consider donating to help support March of Dimes! Any amount is immensely appreciated and will go towards providing a healthier future for all babies!
