Thank you for taking the time to visit my Team Walk for Babies fundraising page to benefit the NICU Akron Children’s Hospital.
The NICU at Akron Children's Hospital has a special place in our family's hearts as that is where Kaylie spent 26 long days after being born at 33 weeks. Almost exactly, to the day, two years later her little brother Caden spent 3 days in the NICU under the bili lights (in the same room Kaylie was in!!). Walk for Babies is a way that we can give back to a hospital that took such good care of our precious gifts.
In 2017, Walk for Babies hit a mile stone of over $1 Million dollars raised since 2008. Without the support of community members like you, Akron Children’s Hospital would not be able to supply the needed assistance to patients and their families in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Akron Children's Hospital's NICU treats 1,800 children annually and is nationally ranked according to U.S News & World Report.
Walk for Babies was created by one family and now has the support of over 1,700 participants, plus their friends and family. As we look towards the future, our goal is to continue to create a community event that makes an impact on local patients for many years to come.
Please consider joining my team and walking on October 6, 2019 at Canal Park.
I hope that you check back frequently for team updates and stories of patients in our communities.
