March of Dimes Walk 2013
Team Baby Walks again! Gray skies couldn't keep us away as we gathered for the March of Dimes 2013 March for Babies. Walks were organized around the country, and ConceiveAbilities was proudly represented in both Eugene, Oregon and the Chicago suburbs. 20 walkers – including many of our gestational surrogates' children – took part in the 3 mile walk in support of the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
ConceiveAbilities prides itself on being "the means to a beginning." We couldn't do it without the commitment from the generous women who serve as surrogates and egg donors to help create these desperately wanted babies. In this spirit of giving, it only made sense to walk together to support all babies in getting the best possible start and opportunity to thrive.
As always, everyone loved having a chance to connect – some even had the opportunity to meet for the first time – and catch up while taking part in a fantastic cause. Check out the great shirts, too – talk about team spirit!
