March of Dimes

I never knew much about March of Dimes until sweet Jenna came along. Since blogging I’d seen many, many fellow baby lost mamas taking part in this organization through walks and fundraisers. It always seemed like such a great thing to be a part of, but I lacked motivation!

This year I’m getting my butt into gear… let me rephrase that. into shape.

Eek.

See that’s the not-so-exciting part. The walk is five miles but seriously guys, I’m a wuss when it comes to working out. But I feel strongly about this. The walk is almost a week from Jenna’s birthday. It’s seems so fitting.

I hope we can do this every year.

So far we have a small ‘team’ forming. And if you live in the area, and want to join us just let me know :)

We are Team Jenna Belle. Walking for her. We’ll have cool t-shirts too :)

So I said all that to say this. My goal is small I think, I picked something I’m comfortable with, and really hoping to achieve. To help raise the funds, I’m donating a portion of EVERY design from here until April 29 to our fundraiser/ walk.

The design queue opens Monday, January 30. Click here for blogger design details and here for WordPress.

I look forward to sharing more about the walk as the day gets closer!! 94 days away.

Lots of work to do!!

If you’ve done a walk in the past and have ANY input/ ideas/ advice (seriously, I’m so new to this) I’d LOVE your input :)

    I’m walking for my daughter too but here in San Antonio! We are trying to get our team together and figure out T-shirts. I don’t suppose you would be able to do a t-shirt design instead of a blog one that I could purchase? It would make the event, our team, and the day just that much more special! oxoxo

    Yay! March of Dimes is so important. I was looking for a charity to donate to in honor of my son and they stood right out. We are walking here in Modesto CA in April. Our son wasn’t premature but he was stillborn due to a cord accident and all our losses are connected. If more research and better prenatal care can make it so one less mommy has to leave the hospital with empty arms I’m all for it.
