Brave Little Bears
Thank you for taking the time to visit my Team Walk for Babies fundraising page to benefit the NICU Akron Children’s Hospital.
As many of you know, Merida was born 14 weeks early shortly after we lost her twin. We spent 175 days in the NICU at Akron Children's hospital. This cause is deeply personal to us and we appreciate any and all contributions!
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 7, 2018 at Canal Park.
I hope that you check back frequently for team updates and stories of patients in our communities.
