Walk For March Of Dimes
March 26, 2013
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick.
Cynthia Hill is an employee of Nationwide's Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH and a long time follower of Buckeye50. She and her team are again walking in "March for Babies" because they want to help out. I know you care, too and that is why she is reaching out asking for you to support her efforts and this great cause. The money being raised goes to prematurity prevention programs and programs that give information and comfort to families with premature babies and babies in intensive care. Any amount is greatly appreciated and they are collecting donations until the day of the walk (April 29).
