Blake was born in 2007 with a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia! He is our CDH warrior! He spent 2 months in the NICU at Children's! He was placed on ECMO the same day he was born. This is a heart/lung bypass and pretty much the scariest machine I have ever seen!! The staff at ACH's NICU was absolutely amazing!! The patience, kindness, and time that was spent with us truly made the difference! This walk is our way to try to give something back to this amazing place!
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 Blake's team by walking on October 6th at Canal Park or by making adonation in his amazing honor!!!
