St. Luke's MaxWell Moose Marchers Hit the Road for the Babies!

By Dr. David C. Pate, News and Community
April 29, 2013

Hundreds of us enjoyed great company and great weather Saturday for the March for Babies in Boise.

MaxWell Moose Marchers were easy to spot in their St. Luke's blue shirts!

In all, 1,380 volunteer walkers signed up to support the March of Dimes' efforts to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

And the MaxWell Moose Marchers were out in force! About 160 St. Luke's physicians, employees, and family members took part, and helped to raise at least $31,026.

I was honored this year to serve as St. Luke's team captain, blessed to have two tiny moose in tow, and proud of my older daughter Lindsey, who was due to have her baby Saturday but held off long enough to take part in the walk! 

My daughter, Laurie, and her husband, Clif, a St. Luke’s nurse, also joined us for this great cause and posed for a picture with the boys alongside MaxWell.

Please join the fun for the Twin Falls walk this coming Saturday. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. and the 3.1-mile walk starts at 10 a.m. Twin Falls Visitor Center, 3591 Blue Lakes Blvd N., Twin Falls.
