One of my NICU volunteer friends, Renee. created the Tour de NICU in honor of her daughter, Daphney who is in heaven. She was born one of four babies...and the three others are healthy three-year-olds here on earth.
Tour de NICU is a 20, 40 and 60 mile bike ride that stops at NICUs in the area.
My three friends and I were at the Children's Mercy South Stop. We gave the fruit and water that were donated by the hospital to the riders. We were there to THANK them for riding. All the money raised will go to the St. Luke's NICU volunteer group.
All 5 of the babies pictured were born prematurely.

Carter LOVED seeing the riders!!
We were so happy there was good weather on Saturday morning!!
