Team ALI Virtual Run Winners

"We are very thankful for those that have supported our walk in honor of Ali's life. When Ali was born and in the NICU, we received a lot of support from others to get through the long process of watching Ali grow and become healthy enough to come home. We have felt this same feeling again by watching the many donations come in this past month. We appreciate the support that you have given, and we know that the money is going to serve other "amazing little infants" that are being born each day.

With Love and Gratitude, Adam, Jodi, & Ali Westenhofer."

I'm very excited to report that we raised $728 for Team ALI and the March of Dimes!!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you to all those who donated, put a button on their blog, tweeted, ran, etc.
