March of Dimes - March for Babies May 7, 2011

Team Claire Rose walked on May 7, 2011 at the March of Dimes March for Babies in Morehead City.  Unfortunately due to Claire's surgery, half of the team was unable to go and walk.  But the other half made up for it! 

Our team goal was $500 but we ended up raising $1,090!!!!  That is awesome!!!  We also had the t-shirt contest.  We only had 2 entries so we used both to create the shirts.  On the front is a heart put together with puzzle pieces since Claire's heart had been put back together.  It also had a yellow ribbon on it to symbolize liver disease awareness.  On the back was the March of Dimes logo with Claire's actual foot prints "walking" across the back.  These were her foot prints done just minutes after her birth. 

We are so thankful to everyone who joined the team, raised money, donated money, raised awareness, and walked.  We feel so loved by all of you.  Claire is determined to be at the walk next year! 

Below are some pictures that team members took of the day.  Looks like the weather was perfect!  Claire's BFF Izzie was even there along with Claire's cousins Connor and Anna and another team member's son, Jake (who was also a preemie).  So Team Claire Rose consisted of adults and kids!  How fun was that?!? 

Thank you for all that you did!!!!  We love you!!!!!

Now for a Claire update - Claire is doing well today.  She slept ok last night but still seems sore and not feeling well.  I hope she gets some more rest today at Granny's.  We are glad to be home!
