Walkathon 2017

Cidu Bill on Apr 20th 2017

marchofdimes.PNG The short version this time:

March for Babies, which I still call the March of Dimes Walkathon even though they officially changed the name years ago. (I’m still allowed to use the old name because my son and I have been doing this since 1993).

Since 2006, we’ve been raising money for the March of Dimes here at CIDU, and we’re on an impressive run: each year, we’ve raised more than the year before. Last year we hit a stunning $1011 (thank you all!), so $1012 will be a high bar.

The event takes place April 30, rain or shine, and unfortunately it’s been leaning more toward “rain” lately.

The donation links are both above, and in the left-hand sidebar.

    A good cause, under either name.

    I would gladly join a march for fewer babies.

    Only four days left, $405 raised and $607 needed to meet the $1,012 goal for 2017.
    Are we going to let Bill’s wife beat him this year?

    I’m happy to see the total going up this morning! Now at $415.

    Well, I just donated, and set up to get the company to match, though their match may be to the overall March of Dimes, not specifically to your walk, Bill. So your total may look off. Hope that’s not an issue.

    One of the two co-owners of our company has not allowed matching the last two years because business is waaay down. Cheap b@st@rd!
    (Oops, did I say that out loud?)
    And Squirrel sez “Aren’t you & Hubby self-employed?”
