Jenny and I have 2 boys. Our first, was born at 24 weeks gestation and lived for only 12 days. Our second boy was born 28 weeks and will be 14 as of July. We have been touched by so many people and organizations and have been blessed by those who helped us. Therefore, we have a societal debt that needs to be paid forward. We started by raising money for the March of Dimes. This will be our 14th year of raising funds for them. Three years ago, our family team was the top team in the nation! Whether you know it or not, March of Dimes researches has benefited every child born after 1970! Here is a link that explains our journey. http://www.fox9.com/news/after-loss-blaine-family-raises-more-than-100000-for-march-of-dimes
In October, 2020, Carmen was hired to lead our NICU family support program. We were able to virtually meet her in January and learn more about the families she has impacted. She spoke of financial hardships, family hardships, and Dad's processing their place in the NICU. We are proud to have donated 100 "My Preemie Baby Books" created by a fellow NICU Mom & Potato Head Project, to help commemorate the family's time in the NICU.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you. Here's a fun picture from our gala Heads or Tails revenue generator! The winner was awarded $500 which she instantly gave back to the cause. This is an awesome example of why you guys always help us exceed our goal. We take care of our own community here. Thank you is never enough but we are greatly humbled by all of you.
Jenny and I are happy to announce that with we raised after expenses 166k that will go to help babies thrive and survive.

We are excited to announce that Jenny and I have met our goal with the help of the March of Dimes. We are happy to say that we have donated 266k over the last two years to help fully fund the NICU family support program in Minneapolis and St Paul. This money will directly impact every baby and their families over the next years. We are excited to get to hear the stories and ways that our charity and hard work are helping right here at home.
Last year, we added a golf tournament to help in our fund raising efforts. Because of the amazing turnout and people involved, we plan on doing another tournament in 2021. Between the gala and the golf tournament, we hope to rasie 200k in one year.
Small update: We are well on our way to completing our goal of 200k in one year. We raised 166k at our gala with only 34k more to go for goal!
