AMWC in the news!:

Each year, my preemie moms group, "Mommies Little Miracles," throws baby showers for moms who have babies at the local Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Last year we made the front page of the St. Pete Times!

"Christie on a Treadmill at the Mall," to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training where I raised $1,400. Yes, I walked and ran for 10 hours on a treadmill in the middle of the mall. You can read about it here in the Suncoast News:
