Hello All! Walk America is coming up in just a few days and I would like to urge everyone to support it and Jeffrey! I had planned on writing a beautiful post about everything but Brian beat me to it. So here’s a copy of Brian’s post.
WalkAmerica 2007 is just 4 days away, and we’re counting on YOU!
What is WalkAmerica? Each year, the March of Dimes organizes an event to raise money to find and fight the causes of birth defects and premature birth. Over a half million babies are born before they’ve reached 37 weeks gestation every year! Our team this year (Me, Danielle and Aunt Liane) will be walking and raising money and awareness in celebration of Jeffrey’s great accomplishments. It’s been 14 months since he came home from the NICU at just under 4 pounds. For those of you who’ve been following this blog since the beginning, you’ll remember what a long road it’s been. We’re very proud of our boy!
Jeffrey would like to thank those of you who’ve already used the online form or sent donations through the mail (Thanks Great Grandma & Grandpap Sheppard!). Each of us has set a goal of $500. Won’t you please consider joining our cause? Click here!
Thank you all for considering helping us out! Please consider joining us and celebrating Jeffrey’s accomplishments!
