March of Dimes

The one day of the year that the temperature falls below 50 degrees in Phoenix... Maybe I am exaggerating, but it sure doesn't feel like it.

This morning the girls, Rich and I got up, put on some rain/winter gear and loaded up the car.

My office in Phoenix was participating in a walk for the March of Dimes. This 5k walk is to help raise money to support premature babies. It was fun to see all the people.

Rich was not so excited. His hands froze. Not really- since it was only 46 degrees- we are just whimpy Phoenix blooded people now.

Ryann and Cara did find some time to have fun. They ran, walked, were carried, rode in the stroller, and jumped through the entire 5k.Here is a sweet picture of the group! (minus Rich, Ryann and Cara)

We had really cool t-shirts made, but it was too cold to show them off. This year our team was sponsored by the Physician we work with in the office. Next year I will be asking you for help... since I found out you can win really cool prizes if you raise a lot of money... I mean, because it is really important to raise money to help save the lives of millions of babies that are born prematurely each year.

Both. Obviously the latter being the more important reason why I will ask for your money, but the prizes are pretty sweet too :)
