    March for Babies Monticello 2012

    Saturday, May 12, 2012
    Time: 10:00 AM
    Registration Time: 9:00 AM
    Monticello Community Center
    505 Walnut Street
    Monticello, MN 55362

    On Saturday, May 12 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 Central 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 the Monticello Community Center is at 9:00 am. The walk starts at 10:00 am. See you there!

     

    Meet our Monticello Ambassador Family

    Amy Hoffman and Kyle Goldsberry walk in Monticello March for Babies in honor of one son and in memory of another.   The St. Michael couple was shocked and excited when they learned they were expecting twins, but a complication during pregnancy allowed one baby to grow bigger while restricting development of the other.

    After spending many weeks on bed rest, their twin sons Adler and Evan were born at 28 weeks, three months premature.  Their son Adler did not survive.  Baby Evan weighed two pounds, four ounces.  He spent the first 77 days of life in the newborn intensive care unit.

    Evan was 2 weeks old before Amy got to hold him. “I couldn’t stop smiling,” explains Amy. “Staring at him, it literally warmed my heart.”

    Evan had a tough road ahead of him.  His lungs were underdeveloped and he suffered from respiratory distress syndrome, a serious breathing problem that many babies born before 34 weeks develop. Evan received surfactant therapy, a life-saving therapy developed by March of Dimes grantees.

    “If it wasn’t for March of Dimes research, funding and support, my son would not be here,” shared Amy.  “I am honored to share our story to give others hope.”

    Today, Evan is a happy four-year-old preschooler.  “People can donate to this amazing charity,” said Amy about the March of Dimes, “they can donate their time, money, and knowledge to help premature babies like Evan.”
