Marching and Bowling for Babies

This weekend Ryan and I are walking with our families in the March of Dimes March for Babies. The March of Dimes helps to give hope to families, like ours, who have babies that are born too soon.  Their mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. 

By walking this weekend and raising money we are helping the March of Dimes do research, offer solutions for babies born early or with birth defects, to educate women on things they can do to increase chances of having a healthy baby, to provide comfort and information to families with a baby in the NICU, and to help push for newborn screenings. We will be walking knowing that we are helping an organization that helps so many babies just like Ella's Halo does.
We also had another board meeting this past week and are working out the details for our own event, Ella's Halo Bowling for Babies. Many things are coming together with donations, sponsors, and guests. We are looking forward to bowling with our families and friends in memory of our little girl in addition to being able to help her friends in the NICU.


If you haven't registered yet for the event on May 15th, visit the events page on to buy your tickets. If you are interested in sponsoring a lane or donating, please email us at for more information.  Also, if you are coming from out of town, we have a block of rooms reserved at a nearby hotel for a reduced rate.  Contact Marriott Residence Inn Edina at (952) 893-9300 to book your room and don't forget to mention Ella's Halo to get the $75.00 rate. 

We walk for babies and we bowl for babies too!
