And We Walked...

As we got to the March For Babies walk I felt my eyes well up with tears. There were a lot of people there walking for babies who were little fighters in the NICU and got to come home. As you know we were not so lucky, but I still could feel the greatness of gratitude coming from the families of those little babies that did survive. It took about 20 minutes before I could get myself together and stop being emotional.

It was a long walk, and not on our side was the fact the night before we had gone to a concert in Atlantic City and didn't get back to the hotel until 1:30 in the morning only to wake up at 6 to get ready to leave. On top of being tired it was in the 80's that day! Those 5 miles felt like 15 but we did it, and got the sticker to prove it.

Our team raised $1030! I was so excited to have contributed so much to such a great cause! I hope next year we can raise even more!

Matt and I would like to thank everyone who came out and walked with us and those that donated to our team.

Here are some pictures of our walk.

It was a great day and we can't wait for next year!
