March for Babies 2010

It didn’t rain… and after having been to this event for three years now, I was happily surprised to see an over-flooded parking lot. OMG. Where did all these people come from?

The March for Babies Walk is one of the major fundraising events for the March of Dimes, and each year an Ambassador Child/Family are selected to represent the organization at its events. This year the Ambassador is Rhett, who was born at 35 weeks and spent about a month in the NICU. He and his family team (mom, dad, sisters and dozens of friends and loved ones – E Company Team) raised more than $1,500 for MOD research.

The total – according to Director Deena Bradford – was 600 walkers+ including LOTS of kids (along with some family dogs) through Veterans Memorial Park in Bettendorf.

The path was marked with posters telling stories of preemies – success stories as well as ones who were being honored in memory.

At the end there was food, games and raffles, along with a memorial banner signed by handfuls of walkers.

A great event! An awesome turnout!

For those of you who received cards at the event, the gallery is now up!!! So check the website and follow the instructions.

…next up, Chefs Auction in October!
