Our March of Dimes March for Babies walk was Saturday morning. It turned out to be a beautiful morning for a 3.5 mile walk. We had 17 people walk on our Million Dollar Babies team:: Me, Drew, Lindy, Will, GrandBob, Suzette, Suzette’s granddaughter Deanna, Mimo, Aunt Anna, Uncle Ed, Jamie, Molly, Janice, Katie, Kris, Micah, and Claire. Katie, Micah, and Claire have walked every year with us – even though Claire was in the womb the first year!
I got to the park at 6:30am that morning to help set everything up. I was on the planning committee for the entire walk this year. Drew and the kids got there around 9am. Around 9:30am they started a small program. We were introduced as the Ambassador Family and Drew had to talk. I have given enough speeches as the Ambassador Mom that I let him handle the one at the walk. Then we got to lead off the entire walk. We had to carry a banner for a little bit. It was fun to be special that day!
I decided last Monday to make our team t-shirts. Katie and I met at AC Moore and got all the supplies and I got to ironing this week. I wanted everyone to know we were the ambassador family team this year!
We made our goal and actually surpassed it. As of right now Drew and I got $3770 and our team got $4670. Thank you to everyone who supported us this year. We have very generous friends and family!!!
Here are some pictures of our day.
