A man with a big heart, and just as large of fists said, “service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” Zies Widerman & Malek feels just as strongly about service to others as a left hook from Muhammad Ali. That is why we have put a team together and are participating in the walk for babies.
The March of Dimes, a national charity with their focus on the awareness of premature birth, has organized a walk this coming weekend in Brevard County to raise money and eyebrows about the growing problem. On Saturday, April 28, 2012, at 5:00 p.m. in Jetty Park of Port Canaveral, a walk is being held to raise money for research to find treatments and prevention of babies being born too soon. To find out more about attending the walk, please visit Team Zies Widerman & Malek’s walk page here. Donations are very welcome too.
Although I am new to this charity, I have been reading up on the issue. According to the March of Dimes website, the cause of most premature births is unknown. Over the past 6 years, more than $15 million has been granted to look further into premature births. Variables such as genetics, environment, and infections have been associated with possible explanations for a baby coming into the world too early.
In addition to their strides in the prevention spectrum, they also contribute to the treatment of preemies. Since not much is known about the reasons, March of Dimes’ commitment to the prolonging of life is second to none.
I am thrilled that such a noble cause will be benefitted by the giving hands of Brevard County this weekend. I encourage all to pay their rent, whether it be this weekend, or in a walk near you. Cheers.
