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 15 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 the NICUs of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Five 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
Over the last four years, we have donated over $625,000 dollars to fund and support Minneapolis and St Paul Children's NICUs. Our hope is that no family has to suffer and can find the resources they need during a troubling time. Recently, we have been told that not only are they in the process of hiring someone for both campuses, but also looking to put a NICU family support program right in our backyard at Mercy Hospital.
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 during the fund the need portion! All the money that was raised during the $100 portion was given to the ambassador family so they could start their own non-profit in Michigan. This is an awesome example of why you guys always help us exceed our goal. Thank you is never enough but we are greatly humbled by all of you.
We are excited to announce that Jenny and I have made two big leaps! Over the last five years, we have raised 875K 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 few years. We are excited to get to hear the stories and ways that our charity and hard work are helping right here at home.
