Weekend Event Tips for National Infertility Awareness Week
Since 1989, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association has organized National Infertility Awareness Week®--April 22-28, 2012 this year--a nationwide campaign intended to educate the public about infertility and the concerns of the infertility community. RESOLVE intends this special week to provide events and activities designed to encourage grassroots advocacy and motivate the infertility movement.
Join RMACT for the Action and Weekend Fun
RMACT is joining the call to the infertility community to participate this week, to stand together and reach out. As RESOLVE points out, millions of people need education about a disease that is often overlooked and misunderstood by healthcare professionals, the government, insurance companies, the media, and even friends and family members. We're going to have fun while we take action this weekend. Won't you join us?
Walk With Us For Healthy Pregnancy
Help Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) take another step towards healthy pregnancy! This year, we will join thousands to walk in the annual March for Babies, in support of the March of Dimes, by walking in Danbury on April 29, 2012 and in Stamford on May 6, 2012. Throughout Connecticut, during late April and early May, a total of nine events will take place across the state, aiming to raise $1.2 million.
Making Strides for Healthy Babies
The March of Dimes notes that this is the nation’s oldest walk fundraiser honoring healthy babies as well as those who need help to survive and thrive. The March for Babies has raised a total of $2 billion since it began in 1970. The March of Dimes uses these funds to help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies; to fund research to find answers to the problems that threaten babies’ lives; and to provide comfort to families who have a baby in neonatal intensive care.
Join Us to Support the March of Dimes
Join us for either walk in Danbury or in Stamford, or to make a pledge to March of Dimes. The money we raise for March of Dimes supports healthy pregnancies, which, as you know, is a priority of our fertility clinic RMACT. The babies and parents who benefit are our friends, colleagues, families and neighbors.
We're looking forward to walking with you!
