Greetings from Sunny South Florida!
My mom and I headed further south to attend the annual March of Dimes Summer Staff meeting in Ft. Lauderdale. During this meeting, March of Dimes staff members from all over the country convene to engage in workshops and training sessions to help them gain more useful tools to promote the March of Dimes Mission. My mom and I attended this year’s meeting to speak at the Mock March for Babies Kick-Off Luncheon. They didn’t show our video, but my mom still cried – Go Figure! My mom shared our story, as she always does, and thanked the staff for their role in saving the lives of countless babies through their work with the March of Dimes. My mom and I got to see so many staff members that we have met through our travels this year and it was so wonderful to be reunited with them.
I also got to go to the beach to collect sea shells to give to the National Youth Council for the March of Dimes. This was a wonderful trip and I really enjoyed my time in South Florida. Most of all, it was an honor to see so many staff members who truly care about the mission of the March of Dimes and work tirelessly to make sure that one day all babies will be born healthy. I love each and every one of you!
