Every year, the March of Dimes holds their annual March for Babies in cities across the country to help improve the health of mothers and babies. March of Dimes was originally founded to help combat the polio disease by President Franklin D. Roosevelt but has since taken on the role of caring for the overall health of mothers and babies to prevent infant mortality and premature birth. Every year, my good friend Brittany Scott (@iCanOnlyBeB) builds a team to march and help fundraise for this wonderful charity. Over 1 million people all over the world participate in these walks every year helping to raise more than $1.8 billion since 1970. Muhammad Ali once said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room on earth”. Please help Brittany and her team raise TONS of money for the March of Dimes so that they can help be of service to mothers and babies all around the globe. This year’s Houston March takes place on April 27, 2014 at the University of Houston and we will be marching in memory of Brittany’s cousin Koreian “Koko” Dupas. If you would like to march with myself and Brittany’s team We Do It For The Kids, you can sign up and make a donation below!
