My friend from grad school is walking for a FABULOUS cause on April 19 in Columbia, MO, and I just wanted to put this on here in case you are interested in helping out. It's the March for Babies sponsored by the March of Dimes. She's getting so close to her goal! Go Cindy!!! Here's some more information, explained by Miss Cindy herself:
"I will be participating again this year in the March of Dimes fundraiser called the March for Babies. This is a five mile walk to raise money for research regarding premature births. Supporting research in preventing premature births has become very important to me since my niece, Carly, was born prematurely in 2006 at 30 weeks. She weighed 2 lbs. 11 oz. It was a gut wrenching experience for my whole family and I attribute her current health and well-being to the excellent medical care that she received after her birth.
"If you would be interested in supporting my walk (or even just want to see an up-to-date photo of my cutie-tutie niece), go to http://www.marchforbabies.org/cindybassett . I know that many people make charitable contributions and I hope this is a cause you will choose. Contributing to my walk online is fast, easy and secure. You can donate directly from my personal webpage with a credit/debit card or PayPal. If you prefer, I can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box on my webpage."
