In 11 short days, Team CharitableConnections will be walking in the March for Babies in Cedar Rapids. As we posted earlier the March of Dimes raises money for premature births and complications that can arise from having babies too soon. As the donations have started rolling in, I thought it might be nice to see where the funds go. Please visit our team page if you would like to make a donation or join us in Cedar Rapids for the March for Babies on April 29th!
Why do you donate to your favorite charity?
April begins CharitableConnections’ first event and we could not be more excited! On April 29th, we will be participating in the March for Babies.
Because babies need 39 weeks to fully develop their brains, the March of Dimes was created to aid mothers in having healthy, full-term babies (here). Over half a million babies are born premature. Funding from the March for Babies supports programs in our area for premature births and helps support the complications of being born too soon. Every day, thousands of babies are born too small and often very sick. We are walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this.
If you are interested in walking with CharitableConnections and the March for Babies, join our team here. If you cannot commit to walking on April 29th, please consider donating to any of our team members. Check out your local March of Dimes events at http://www.MarchofDimes.com.
