March for Babies 2010

Saturday, May 1st, was our March for Babies walk. The day called for scattered thunderstorms but I was hoping the rain would stay away. It was drizzly at the beginning and then rainy during party of the walk. Towards the end of the walk it stopped rainy but was still muggy out. It wasn't that bad though. 2 years straight of rain! Maybe next year we'll get that sunshine!

Thank you to everyone who came out and walked on our team-Mom & Dad P, Mom & Dad H, Chantel, Rob, Autymn, Braxton, Jen, Aunt Nancy, Amber, Jaiden, Zyven, Parker, Aunt Jenny, Patience, Megan, Shelia and her daughter (sorry, I can't remember the name!). Anthony, Kyndra, and I are so glad you came out and joined us!

Thank you to Sarita, Jodi, Caroline, Susan, Lisette, Harriet, Debby, Stephanie, Kelli, and Sara for donating to me! Your support is much appreciated and I was able to raise $200 for the March of Dimes.

Here are is the front followed by the back of our tshirts. I know it doesn't look like it but all the lettering is in a dark purple. Thank you Deirdre from Dee's Tees for creating the tshirts for us yet again!

Here are a few pictures from the walk. Sorry that the quality isn't the greatest. My small camera decided to not function during the walk after 1 picture so my friend Jen sent me some pics via email and the resolution is small. I'm sure glad she had her camera! Word of advice-don't put cheapo batteries in your camera because then your camera might not work!

I had intended to create a poster but I never got around to it, which ended up being ok since it rained. Maybe next year I'll get that done. If you're in the Findlay area and want to join us next year for the walk we'd love to have you on our team to walk for Carleigh!

Oh shoot Holly! I was going to donate something, especially because I wasn't able to get a shirt :( Count me in for that next year!

Sorry to see you had crummy weather. Last year was terrible weather for us, this year it is was chilly and windy - but at least no rain :)

Miss talking to you, glad to see everything is going well with Lainey! Catch up soon!

I love the pictures and I LOVE your t-shirts. My sister and I were just saying that we need to have new ones made for our family team. I'll have to get on this now.

I just love, love, love the t-shirts and photos. It sounds like it was a wonderful way to remember Carleigh - I hope you are all dry now with lots of new memories.

I really want to do this next year, Holly. You did such a great job of honoring Carleigh and preventing other parents from suffering in the future.

I was going to send you an email to tell you this, but I'll just post it here. On Saturday, I had to go to my best friend's baby shower. I stopped at Kmart on the way to pick up a few things, and when I was checking out they asked if I would donate to the March of Dimes. I said yes, and then he asked if I would donate $5. I agreed, and they gave me a card to write my name on. I wrote my name, and underneath I wrote "For Carleigh" with a little heart. Your little one has blessed my life, and I think of her often.
