Let’s walk for premature babies!
The snow should be ending soon and that means we are approaching “walking season”.
This year, while we are raising money for both the March of Dimes and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, we will only be participating in the “Go theDistance Walk and Family Fun Day” at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla.
We have decided to walk with our friend’s team at their “March for Babies” (benefiting the March of Dimes) as they are this year’s ambassador family and this falls on the same day as our “March for Babies” in White Plains. So, our team is only walking at the “Go the Distance Walk and Family Fun Day” for Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital this year.
We know that there are many charities to choose from and that many of them fundraise in the spring. Where should you donate your hard-earned dollars?
We are asking you to choose one of our charities and donate to them- in the name of Joy and our team FROM HOPE TO JOY. If you are in a financial situation where you can donate to both, it would mean a great deal to us.
This year- we would love for you to walk with us, on team FROM HOPE TO JOY, on Sunday May 3rd at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital’s “Go the Distance Walk and Family Fun Day”. Please click the link HERE and sign up for our team and include your donation. Once you sign up, please send me an email to: email@example.com with your t-shirt size so I can have one ready for you when you arrive! You don’t have to walk with us to donate- but we would love to see you there. This walk is also a great day for the family. There are bouncy houses, face painters, dance parties, all sorts of characters walking around, free food and drinks for all walkers, free gifts for children, a large children’s activity tent and much more AND THIS IS ONLY A 1 MILE WALK!
Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital is very special to us. Joy spent 121 days inside it’s NICU and we attribute her amazing success (being born at 23 weeks, 1 lb 4 oz and 11 ¾ inches) to the exemplary care of her medical team at MFCH.
If you prefer to donate to the March of Dimes, or can afford to donate to both, we would also be very grateful. Every baby is a March of Dimes baby! Yes, they’re the pioneers of researching ways to prevent premature births like Joy’s, but they are also the reason for the Apgar score and newborn screening tests each baby gets at birth. Click HERE to donate to the March of Dimes under team FROM HOPE TO JOY and know you are helping all babies.
We thank you for supporting our charities and hope to see you on Sunday May 3rd at the “Go the Distance Walk and Family Fun Day” at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla.
