Three-year-old Nicholas Tabori and his family will serve as 2013 Guilford County March for Babies Ambassadors. Nicholas was born prematurely and spent seven weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“Nicholas will be four in January and since his difficult arrival, the March of Dimes has been a cause very close to us,” Kate Tabori, Nicholas’ mother says. “Our family walks as Team Tabori every year, and each year we try to get more people involved and bring more attention to this very worthy cause.”
As Ambassadors, the Tabori family will speak at local and regional meetings, explaining how the March of Dimes has benefited them and encouraging others to join the cause.
The family will especially work to promote the March of Dimes’ annual Walk for Babies. The Guilford County walk will take place April 27 at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
“We are thrilled to have the Tabori family serve as the March for Babies Guilford County Ambassadors for our 75th anniversary,” says Katie Garrett Williamson, division director of the Greater Triad Division of March of Dimes. “Their family is the perfect representation of our mission. Their passion to help babies be healthy and strong is enormous.”
