The Results Are In!

Posted by Linda

Doesn’t March for Babies ’08 feel like ages ago? It sort of was. Our walk (my first!) in White Plains was in April. And here we are, getting ready for another amazing March for Babies. But first things first. Because I’ve got some numbers I just have to share…


You rallied your families, your friends and your co-workers and you walked – more than half a million of you! You walked in the rain in New York. You braved the morning chill in Baltimore. And you took out the sun block in Kansas City. You walked in places I’ve never heard of (sorry about that). You walked a total of 3 million miles. Let me repeat that for you: 3 million miles! If my math is not too far off, that’s something like 120 trips around the world – or 6 trips to the moon and back!


It’s only natural to get shy asking for money (I know I do). But when you’re asking for babies, apparantly not so much! Here’s my favorite number: you raised $115 million in March for Babies ’08! And that money will go a long way helping babies and their families.


May I just say: wow! And, thank you.


Oh, and just so you know… you kind of raised the bar there for 2009! Are you psyched yet?
