March of Dimes March for Babies

Thank you to those who supported me and my OB unit in supporting this very good cause.  Your donation helped us in not only reaching our unit goal, but surpassing it.  Several OB staff turned out to support the cause.  Our OB unit raised over $1300 which surpassed our goal of $800.  There were over 600 people who walked and many more behind the scenes to make this a successful event.  Again, thank you you so much for your donation towards such an important cause.  The walk was a lot of fun and it felt good to participate in this activity with my fellow nurses.
