Hi I'm Wesley, and 11 years old. Before I was born, my mom and dad had a baby girl (my sister), and she passed away just hours after she was born at The Rockyview Hospital. My mom and dad said the doctors and nurses did all they could, but she went to heaven on January 15, 2006. My parents and lots of their friends and family ran the Mother's Day Run for the first time that year in honour of my sister, and raised more than $10,000. I was born April 2007. I had a really hard time, and needed to spend a couple weeks at the Foothills Hospital NICU. My mom and dad tell me that without the excellent care and doctors and nurses that took care of me and helped get me better, I would have died. I became an NICU Graduate and came home with my mom and dad on Mother's Day 2007, right after Team Peyton ran their second year. have been a part of the Mother's Day Run & Walk with my family since I was born, first in a stroller, then walking, and running 5km with my mom last year. Every year we raise money for the important work that the NICU does, so they can continue to help take care of babies like me, and my sister in heaven. Our group of family and friends have raised more than $50,000 for the NICU since 2006. This year, I am going to run the 10km with my godfather Mike, while my family and friends and baby sister walk the 5km and cheer us on! I am hoping to raise as much money as I can for important equipment needed in the NICU. I hope you will help support me, and all the babies like me that need the help. Thank-you everyone!
