Walk For Maddie
For 2010 March for Maddie Information and Teams, please CLICK HERE.
April 7th, 2009, Madeline Alice Spohr unexpectedly passed away. Now, people all over are coming together to honor her and her family. This post will show you a few ways you can do the same.
People around the country are organizing teams to walk in Maddie’s honor at their upcoming March of Dimes Walks. It is so easy for you to join in. Just sign up with the team close to you and go walk that day.
