Helping to Save Babies, One Life at a Time!

The March of Dimes is a charity I've supported for many years. Since 2003, I've been involved with the March of Dimes and March for Babies as both a walker and a team captain. When I lived in Colorado and worked for FirstBank I headed up our corporate team of over 100 walkers who in our best year raised nearly $25,000 to help save babies! It was a great accomplishment and the March of Dimes is a great charity to work with.

Since moving to Baltimore I started my own "family" team, Team Brennbug. This year so far we are 4 members strong and looking for lots more Baltimore area friends, fellow bloggers, and moms to walk with us in support of healthier babies on Saturday, May 14th at Camden Yards at 9am. Together we will walk 4 miles to help raise funds and awareness to help prevent premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality. Click on over to Team Brennbug's page with the March of Dimes to sign up! This is the first year all three of my kids are walking with me and I am so excited.

If you are unable to walk with us on May 14th please consider making a donation to the March of Dimes via my walker page. Any little bit will help!

Over the years the March of Dimes has made great strides in improving the health of babies. Did you know the March of Dimes is the charity behind the cure for polio? Did you also know they helped fund research for surfactant, a life saving drug that is injected into premature babies lungs to help them breath. The March of Dimes has also helped revolutionize NICU care in the U.S. and support for parents of these very sick babies. I can't wait to see what breakthrough is next for the March of Dimes!

Thank you for your support!
