Today our family walked in our first ever March of Dimes March for Babies. This walk was especially important because we did it in celebration of our premature son, Bronx, who survived respiratory distress syndrome.

I have been organizing my team and collecting donations for this event since December, so I was really excited that the big day was finally here! And after all the months of hard work, our team has managed to raise $889! That is enough to provide some of the same lifesaving respiratory treatments that Bronx received in the hospital to three other premature babies. I am so proud that we were able to contribute so much to this wonderful organization. Again, a BIG thank you goes out to all our sponsors and walkers for making this amazing day possible.
We were expecting a downpour, so we brought umbrellas. Luckily, we only had a slight mist around kickoff time and the rest of the walk remained rain-free (although, the drizzle did make some of my pictures a little foggy).
Mile 3 was supposed to be a big deal, because it was supposed to be a 3.7 mile walk. Then we passed a Mile 4 marker, and then we walked another half a mile. Someone got their math wrong…and I got extra exercise.
