    March for Babies Fairmont 2012

    Saturday, May 19, 2012
    Time: 9:30 AM
    Registration Time: 8:30 AM
    Sylvania Park
    4th Street & Lake Ave
    Fairmont, MN 56031

    On Saturday, May 19 our community will be walking in March for Babies to give hope to the families of babies born too soon or sick -- more than 7,200 each year in Minnesota alone.

    The money we raise will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies right here in Southwestern Minnesota.

    It funds research to find answers to the serious problems that threaten our babies, like premature birth. Affecting more than half a million babies in our country each year, premature birth is the #1 cause of newborn death and the rate of premature birth continues to rise.

    Registration for March for Babies at Sylvania Park is at 8:30 am. The walk starts at 9:30 am.

    Meet our Fairmont Ambassador Family

    Dave and Renee Thimesch walk in March for Babies in honor of their daughter Mabel.  Renee had an easy pregnancy with perfect checkups until her third trimester. After increased pain and discomfort, her water broke at 32 weeks. Despite the doctor’s efforts to slow down labor, Renee delivered Mabel through an emergency c-section eight weeks premature.

    Mabel Grace Thimesch weighed three pounds, 13 ounces.  “We held her for the first time about 27 hours after birth,” said Renee.  “It moved us to tears.”  Mabel spent the next 31 days in the newborn intensive care unit. March of Dimes is researching the causes of problems that threaten babies. 

    March of Dimes led the drive to put newborn intensive care units within reach of every baby.  Our Nobel Prize-winning research offers hope of treatments and preventions for serious health problems, like premature birth and birth defects. Renee and Dave walk in March for Babies and share their story to support future NICU babies and help raise awareness by word of mouth.

    “People can donate time and money to help March of Dimes,” said Renee. “We want to help raise awareness of March of Dimes and the problem of prematurity.”
