as you may or may not know, item #21 on my 24 before 25 list is to "participate in some sort of marathon/walk for a good cause."
my coworker veronica (she was also a bridesmaid in my wedding) found this walk and asked if i wanted to walk with her, to which i said "of course!" obviously i would have participated regardless of the charity, but it was a happy coincidence that this walk benefits the March of Dimes charity..
veronica ended up not being able to participate because of a family thing, but carmella and the baby walked with me, and we had so much fun! it was such a fun day, and to see all these people coming together to help babies was very heart-warming.
this was one of the best things i saw - these triplets were born at 26 weeks. they all weighed under 2 pounds each. thanks to the march of dimes charity, they were able to get medical help and are now happy and healthy.
this is definitely something i can't wait to participate in again next year. carmella and i want to put together a team and get our friends together to walk with us.
