March for Babies!

After Gideon died we wanted (no needed) to find ways to remember and honor him. I've already told you about some of the things we have done for his birthday or how we visit him once a month. Next week we will take part in yet another tradition that we started 2 years ago - the March for Babies (also called march of dimes walk for life) This year the march has snuck up on me a lot faster that I would like to admit. Yesterday I realized that we could do the march next week or the week after that, talk about short notice. We decided that we are going to sign up and do the walk while we are in Chicago next week because we thought it would be fun to do with our families (and anyone else that can come!)

If you would like to join Gideon's Gang (our team name) for the walk in Chicago (crystal lake) click on the link and hit the pink "join this team" button. The walk we are doing is on April 27th at 10 am (registration is at 9) They give you snack during the walk which is 3.1 miles (I think) and lunch afterwards. You can also join our team and change the location if you are unable to join us in Chicago on the 27th, there are walks all over the country and there are different dates and times.

If you can't walk but would like to do something in honor of Gideon and to help other premature babies you can donate to Gideon's Gang as a team or you can sponsor me by either hitting the link at my side bar or going to my personal walk page. Thanks for helping save tiny babies!

Hope to see you at the walk! If you have any questions please email me - growingoodsons[at]gmail[dot]com

Please note that if you sign up to walk it doesn't mean that you have to try to rasie money, you can, but you don't have to.
