Get Ready

If you have been reading my blog for awhile you know that I am a big supporter of March of Dimes. This charity holds a special place in my heart. Every year I go beyond my means in raising more and more money to support March of Dimes...this year is no different. Today I am going to the kick off lunch for our local March of Dimes and I can't believe the time is here again to start raising money! Here is the story of why I started raising money for March of Dimes. (if you haven't read it, start with that story and then continue to the rest of my story) This year the March of Dimes means more to me than every before. After having two miscarriages myself, it touches a place in my heart that it hasnt' ever touched before. This year I will be not only raising money for premature babies but also in memory of babies that I have lost. Its hard to even write this without tears flowing from my eyes because it means that much to me.

The readers and mothers out there need to know that March of Dimes not only support premature babies but healthy babies as well. If you have had healthy babies or are carrying a healthy baby...March of Dimes has helped in this!

This year I have tricks up my shirt to break out, and I am excited about the challenge to raise more than $2500.00. Last year we reached our goal of $2000.00 and it felt good....this year we not only want to raise more money but to get more walkers present. Here is my personal page where you can keep up with my goals and achievements ....www.marchforbabies.org/kkyle.

So....all my blogging friends, I will keep you up to date on my progress and if any of you want to ever meet in person, by coming to the walk, I would love love love it!!!!! If anyone has a great passion for March For Babies like myself, I would love to hear your ideas!! We will be selling tee-shirts again and accepting any donations you are willing to give. Lets get together to save babies!!! Here is our first place team from last year!!!
