The Walk

I've talked about the March of Dimes before. The research they supported is responsible for Robbie even having a chance at life. The development of surfactant alone leaves me forever beholden to their organization.

But that isn't all the March of Dimes does. As a group, the MoD is trying to save babies. Babies who would never be conceived, babies who would be lost to miscarriage or stillbirth, babies who are born too soon or with birth defects are all helped by the mission of the March of Dimes.

When we were having difficulty trying to conceive, their website offered information, when we suffered two miscarriages, they offered research and hope and when Robbie was born, they offered life for our impossibly tiny son. In the years between our initial desire to become parents and now, we have seen so many others affected by these same circumstances and more. These days I think I know more children born prematurely than I do born at full term. And we've seen other friends fight birth defects to help their children grow and thrive.

In short- the March of Dimes is as close to my heart as any organization can be.

At this time last year, we were still in quarantine. We were under strict orders not to go anywhere except doctor's appointments. So when the annual March of Dimes March for Babies was scheduled, we were saddened that we could not participate. At that time, I made David promise that next year would be different. Next year, we'd be able to give back.

Well, "next year" has become this year and the time now! I'm more excited than even I had imagined.

Robbie has his own team and we are, of course, proud members. We are hoping you will join us. We, of course, would love to have donations. The money will go to save children just like Robbie who need the medical care that the March of Dimes allows for. But even if you can't donate, we would love for any and all of you to join our team and walk with us.

The walk we are participating in is April 24, 2010 in Forest Park, St. Louis, MO. There are more details on Robbie's team page as well.

In the coming weeks and months, we are hoping to sponsor a few prizes for those who donate either of their wallet or their time, so be on the lookout for those opportunities. If you do make a donation in Robbie's name, please be sure to leave a comment either on the team page, the blog or send us an email to let us know. Everyone who participates will be entered in a few drawings. You could even win your very own Remarkable Robbie t-shirt. I know you're excited!

We truly hope to see you all there. With enough support, maybe some day foundations such as the March of Dimes won't be necessary any more.
