My beautiful, sweet nephew was born too soon. Although my sister did all she could for him, he came three months early and only got to live for eighteen days. It was a short life but a blessed one, full of people who loved him with their whole hearts.
I am truly blessed to have met him when so few got the chance. Little Harrison has changed lives just from his short time here on earth, and walking in March of Dimes is something that I feel like I can do to return the favor.
Harrison changed my life, and I would love to be able to help change others. Our team name is #HarrisonsHeroes, in memory of our brave little baby.
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small, and, often, very sick. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this.
If you would be interested in helping our March of Dimes team, there are lots of ways to get involved:
• You can come by either NWGACU office and donate $1 and sign a card that we will hang up all around both offices. We will also have donation buckets for you to drop any loose change in.
• You can come to one (or all!) of the bake sales we will be having. These sales will be all day at both branches on Friday, April 25, and Friday, May 2, and all proceeds will go to our March of Dimes team.
• You can donate directly on our team website here.
• You can sign up and walk with us! The walk will be held at Berry College on Saturday, May 3, at 9 a.m. You can get more information about signing up here.
We are trading our walking shoes for our marching shoes and hoping that, with your help, we can make a difference in many babies lives. Thank you for your support!
