WalkAmerica 2007: Team Holland and Eden!

It's that time of year again!

We're gearing up for the big day once again, preparing to join the efforts of the March of Dimes to raise awareness about prematurity, and to raise money to fund research targeted at preventing prematurity, and lessening the negative impact that it has on so many lives.

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of others across the country, and internationally, who supported our efforts last year. We set our initial goal at $1,000, and were able to MORE THAN DOUBLE it to raise $2,613.00 in honor of Holland and Eden. I'd love to be able to raise even more this year.

We will be walking on Saturday, April 28, 9:00am at Hines Park in Westland, MI. We had an incredible team of about 30 walkers last year, and would love to have you all back, as well as anyone else who wants to join us.

Please visit our WalkAmerica site at to donate in honor of Holland and Eden, to sign up as a walker for our team, or just to monitor how much money we have raised.

Thank you in advance for your support in helping us reach our goal!

And gosh, can you believe how much they have grown and changed in the last year???

Holey Schmoley!!! I hadn't heard! One day out of the cyber world, and I miss news like that!

Congratulation to Tertia. I'm so jealous....but, I won't be next. Those darn IUD's are just so reliable.

I would love to do the WalkAmerica here in honor of Holland and Eden, as well as my friend's little girl, Lilly, who was an older preemie (33 weeker. She's almost 2 now). Is there any way to do that from here, and anything I need to know? (Here is Louisville, KY.) Thanks!
