THE STORY:

In loving memory of my daughter, Teagan Jade Poole, born 21 weeks too early (6/27/07).

A special thank you to the Regional Perinatal Center, Dr. Nosovitch, Dr. Bode, Crouse Hospital, CNY Perinatal & Infant Bereavement Network, and our friends and family during a very difficult time...and for the continued support in honoring Teagan's short life... and for making sure her baby brother and sister will always know about their big sister.

Purple ribbons will be made available to anyone who would like to remember, honor and or celebrate the life of a baby.  Each ribbon requested will be attached to my daughter's race shirt and will accompany me in Teagan's Race on November 6, 2011. Names, initials and or dates may be placed on the ribbons and returned to you, if requested, upon completion of the race.   Ribbons will be available at each of our events and may also be requested through our website!  Please help me to honor our babies and to have our purple cause stand out in the crowd of more than 45,000 runers!

As 10/31/11, we have 56 memorial ribbons

Ribbons were available at the 10/2/11 Walk To Remember, in Syracuse, as sponsored by Crouse Hospital and the CNY Perinatal & Infant Bereavement Network.  Thank you to all who donated and added to our ribbon collection! 

The race shirt, with the attached ribbons, was displayed at our main fundraising event on October 29, 2011 from 12-2pm at Shogun Martial Arts Studio located on Grant Ave. in Auburn...Cardio-Kick Box-A-Thon, Karate Demonstrations, Purple Feather Hair Extensions, Raffles and more....Thank you to all who participated and supported the event!

Official Race Sponsors:  Shogun Martial Arts, Ukrainian National Club, Knights of Columbus, Auburn Fire Dept. (Union & Benevolent), Owasco Fire Dept., Weedsport Fireman's Auxiliary, Victory Sports Medicine, Contemporary OB/GYN, Lookin' Good, Meadowbrook Golf Club, AWD Design & Consulting, The Run 4 Life & The Printery.

If anyone has any ideas for additional fundraising ideas and or would be able to sponser an event, please let me know!  I can run a marathon...I'm just not so great at fundraising for one:)

Please spread the word and re-post this website to your email and or face book accounts... thank you for all the donations currently received!!!  Please note:  credit cards may be used on-line and checks (made out to March of Dimes) and cash must be given to either Travis and or myself so the money can be directly given to our MOD NYC Chapter Representative...we need to have Team Teagan credited with all the donations.  Off-line donations and donors will also be recognized on our webiste. 

Please also share our project with your places of work, employment and or gathering... upon their donation, we will formally recognize them and encourage others to return the support through word of mouth promotions.  

MOD purple wrist bands are now available...let's band together to prevent premature birth! 

Purple MOD awareness ribbons are also available!

Team Teagan participated at the Trick R Trot on 10/22/11...check out their websites at www.trickrtrot.webs.com & www.therun4life.org ...Please support this local organization which serves to fundraise for  children's charities.  Vin Gleason (and his organization) has been a great support for Teagan's Race... 

The Citizen will be running an article about our story on 11/1/11 in the Lake Life section...a picture of the race shirt with ribbons and other event photos may also be included!

Stay tuned for a local running 5k race "Teagan's Race" and family fun walk in the next 1-2 years... local races to support the local March of Dimes and Bereavement Network through Crouse Hospital...

11/13/11 Updates:  Thank you for the support and donations...we met our goal and completed the race!  I recieved many comments throughout the race about the shirt/ribbons and heard many stories shared by others...  As a result of this fundraising project, we are expecting local road races to be created in our local community next year, in Teagan's memory and to benefit the MOD.  Please remeber to donate to MOD throughout the year...money is always needed!  Please wear purple on 11/17/11 for World Prematurity Day...local community events and or recognition will occur on that day...

To heighten awareness of World Prematurity Day® events are happening in CNY throughout November, including:

•             From November14-20 you can see the Crouse Hospital clock tower and the National Grid Building in Syracuse shining in purple light to symbolize hope for a healthy start for more babies. 

•             On November 16, from 11am – 9pm you can help raise money for the March of Dimes by eating pizza at CiCi’s in Cicero! CiCi’s will donate 10% of your net sales to the March of Dimes. So, bring a friend and enjoy all the pizza, pasta, salad and dessert you want or get it to go!

•             Friday, November 18th, will be March of Dimes Prematurity Awareness Night at the Syracuse Crunch. The Crunch will be playing the Hersey Bears at 7:30 at the War Memorial.  Tickets can be purchased at the March of Dimes office for $15.00.  Three dollars from each ticket will benefit the CNY March of Dimes.
