March of Dimes Walk @ LMH on April 19th at 1:00PM


Hi, friends.

 

As you may know, we lost our precious Elise 4 years ago this coming June to a virus called CMV (or Cytomegalovirus).  We were honored to be chosen as this year's March of Dimes Ambassador family.  Please join us for our walk in memory of our daughter, and donate whatever you feel led.  March of Dimes has funded various research grants over the past few years related to CMV and its prevention/future vaccination.  CMV cannot be stopped (and babies cannot be saved!) without the awareness of the general public of CMV and support from our government.  As I type this, legislation is in the works in TN for mandatory CMV education for pregnant women as well as newborn testing for any baby who fails a hearing screen (red flag for CMV). It is because of the wonderful support from family and friends such as you that we press forward, educating all we are able, about CMV and its prevention. 

 

Here is the link to donate and/or join our team to walk. We would love to have you walk with us!  http://www.marchforbabies.org/team/educateforelise

 

March for Babies will be Sunday, April 19th. Registration is at 1:00 and walk begins at 2:15.  More information and our story can be found in the link above.

 

We are also selling T-shirts (picture attached) to raise money, all of which goes directly to March of Dimes.  We will be wearing these the day of our walk. If you would like to purchase a T-shirt, you may contact Ashley Head, at ashelyhead@lmhcare.org or 787- 5087. T-shirts are $12 for ADULT SIZES S-XL AND $14 FOR XXL AND UP. T-shirts will need to be paid for by Tuesday, March 24th. If writing a check, please make it out to Rebekah McGill. All payment may be given to Ashley Head.

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

 

Thank you so much!
