Andrew Rabinowitz and his wife founded R Baby Foundation in 2006, after their daughter was misdiagnosed in the hospital - a mistake that turned tragic. R Baby Foundation is the first and only not-for-profit foundation uniquely focused on saving babies' lives through improving pediatric care.
"We are doing our 2nd Mother's Day Run/Walk in Central Park for adults and children including a 4 mile run, 1.3 mile health walk, kid's fun run ages 2-12 and a family fun festival with activities for the entire family (Nike sports clinics, Live kids entertainment by Raggs and songs for seeds, arts and crafts by appleseeds, pampering massages, music, giveaways and so much more!)
I wanted to invite you to spend a fun Mother's Day morning (8:00-11:30am) for a worthy cause by joining us and signing up for the R Baby Run/Walk - you can participate by running, walking, or just enjoying the festival. This is an official New York Road Runners event so we must get all our participants to register as soon as possible at www.rbabyrunwalk.org since they sold out last year. Once you register, you can help raise funds and awareness by sending out this type of email to your contacts. If you cannot attend but you still want to help you can also sign up as a virtual walker on the site and create a team by raising funds on-line to support R Baby. To register for the race or make a charitable donation please see www.rbabyrunwalk.org.
Any and all support is appreciated. I appreciate your consideration."
