And like that another year has passed and another March for Babies is around the corner!
This will be the 3rd year the Loving Nest is proud to participate in the March for Babies in Boston. Last year the event took place at Fenway Park and this year it will return to the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell. This year’s walk is 2 days after my due date, so although we will not be physically there, we still want to contribute as much as possible.
Tell me more about it, you say.
Well, March for Babies is a wonderful cause that raises money to help give each baby a healthy beginning. The money raised not only is used in research, but also supports local programs that educate women and reduce risks during pregnancy, as well as provides comfort and information to 90,000 families with a newborn in intensive care through March of Dimes NICU Family Support®. Their involvement has also helped the U.S. premature birth rate to drop for the 7th year in a row. When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.
How can I help?
This year I won’t be physically walking, but anyone who wants to spend a nice day in Boston walking for a wonderful cause is welcome to join and represent The Loving Nest’s team. Don’t feel like walking? That’s fine too. Head over to our page and place your small (or big) donation today. Any amount is welcome and appreciated and will be making a difference in a baby and family’s life.
When is the Boston March for Babies?
This year the Boston walk will be on Saturday, May 7th at 10:00am. Join everyone for a wonderful walk at the scenic location that is the DCR Hatch Shell (Address: 47 David G. Mugar Way, Boston, MA 02108).
