We walked in the Tampa March of Dimes walk today! I was great to get outside on a beautiful morning and walk for an even better cause! My Green Beans continue to be my inspiration to do good things and to make a difference. I’m sure they are pleased to be watching down on us helping preemies have a better chance at life. The hope is that all preemies will be born healthy one day.
I designed the shirts we wore for the walk and had them printed on bright green shirts. They say GreenFamily.net on the front and this on the back:
My parents, Josh, and I walked with a big group of neighbors. One of our neighbors, Jack, is my boot camp instructor, and he just so happens to have 9 year old quintuplets! They were born at 27 weeks and spent months in the NICU, but luckily, they are all happy and healthy kids today!
The 3 mile walk up and down Bayshore Blvd. flew by and was tons of fun! Our walk lined the bay, so the view was beautiful! The walk also took us right by Tampa General Hospital where I laid just a little over a year ago with my babies. It was just another reminder of why we are doing this.
A big thanks to my parents who walked with us on our first ever Team Green Bean walk! I’m already looking forward to next year’s walk! I hope to have more people participate next year.
