It's that time of year again, the March for Babies is Saturday May 7, 2011 at Auditorium Shores.

PLEASE walk with us, buy a t-shirt and help us give every baby a fighting chance!

T-shirts are only $20 this year and $9 of that goes straight to the March of Dimes. (Yes, that mean's they're cheaper than last year AND each shirt raises more money for the babies than last year's!)

Want one? You know you do!

Just shoot me an email with how many and what size, I'll order them and pay for them and you can pick them up the day of the walk or I'll personally pay to mail it to you if you can't make it on walk day.

I've been very busy with Bryce, work and my March of Dimes parent to parent volunteering and so have unfortunately fallen behind on our teamBAM works for the year so I need to know ASAP if you'd like a shirt.

PLEASE let me know today or tomorrow so I can make sure we all get them!

Here is what they look like...

If you're gett ing this email, reading this blog post or otherwise seeing this than you know that Bryce struggled for many, many weeks in the neonatal ICU after his extremely premature birth just to survive. He weighed only 1.5 pounds at 12" long, his eyes were fused closed for weeks and he could not breathe on his own for many months.

Every day, thous ands of babies are born this way: too soon, too small and often very sick.

And it's the March of Dimes' research that is helping these babies fight for their lives. It's the artificial surfactant and nitrous oxide therapy that were discovered by researchers funded directly by the March of Dimes that gave our Bryce his fighting chance. And look at him today.

Wouldn't it be an awesome tribute to Bryce's incredible fight to have a huge group walking in his honor May 7th? We think so! That's why we've created teamBAM!, and that is why we hope you will walk as part of teamBAM at Auditorium Shores on Saturday, May 7th at 9 a.m.

If you just can't make the walk with us, please help by donating to our team or purchasing a t-shirt.

To make a donation or sign up to walk with us visit the teamBAM! page, to order a shirt email me with the size and quantity you want.

Thank you for being a champion for babies!
