March of Dimes March for Babies....

Team Tellez

Message from the Team Captain:

Participating in the March for Babies is an event that hits close to home for me and my family. On April 13th, 2005 I gave birth to twin girls, Alyssa & Arianna at 26 weeks gestation. Each of the girls weighed approximately only 2 lbs. Sadly, Alyssa passed away suddenly from an infection at 41days old. My other daughter, Arianna spent about 3 long months in the NICU before coming home. It had been the most difficult time in our lives and the pain of losing a child never goes away. We walk in memory of Alyssa and in honor of Arianna. We hope to raise enough money and awareness so we can help prevent another family from experiencing this kind of heartache and pain. All babies deserve a healthy start!
The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.
This is our fourth year participating as "Team Tellez". We have been one of the top family teams in Bergen County to raise money for the March of Dimes. Please support our team by making a donation or joining our team to walk.
Join us in the walk that helps all moms and babies. Thank you!!

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
    Funds raised in March for Babies support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And they will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
That time is quickly approaching for the March of Dimes, "March for Babies" walk. This years walk is on Sunday, May 1st at Darlington Park in Mahwah.
Please join me in this wonderful event that is so near and dear to my heart. Click on the link below to join Team Tellez and walk with us for such a worthy cause. I know times are tough for many of us, but any donation or fundraising that you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.

We will also be doing a Zumba fundraiser on April 10th at the Westwood Elks. More details to follow =)

Thanks for your love and support!
