why we walk  We now have 21 Walkers and have raised $355!   Please consider donating to our team or walking with us in Fairfield CT (May 5)  or Saratoga NY (April 28) or joining Team Go Ginny Go and walk near where you live.  

Heath and I are honored to be more and more involved with the March of Dimes here in Connecticut.  Just in the past few weeks we have had dinner with the National Ambassador Family and March of Dimes National Staff and we shared our story over lunch with the Volunteer Council from General Electric.  We are excited to be bringing our friends and family together for our Family Team , Go Ginny Go, as well as developing a GE Corporate team to walk at the Fairfield March for Babies.  We have a lot of work to do but it is for a cause that we are passionate about.

We are passionate about working with the March of Dimes because their funding and research has significantly contributed to the advancement of care of premature babies like Virginia, but also because of the support that we received from the March of Dimes during our NICU stay and after.

We are also passionate because of the other families that we know.  We walk for the precious babies that have gone to heaven, for babies that never met their families, for babies that fought hard, for babies that are still in the hospital, for babies that are still struggling, for babies that have overcome so much and for families that will never be the same.  We walk for Virginia, Eryn, Biden, Isabella, Logan, Maxim, Hope, Patrick, Faith, Eva, Dylan, Holden, Baby Patel, and Baby O.  Each of these babies have stories of love, heartache, and strength.

We also walk for families like these:

Join us... together we can all make a difference.
