Casteel to lead March
of Dimes WalkAmerica Saturday morning
County Judge Carter Casteel will lead hundreds of New Braunfels residents as they walk for someone they love during the South Central Texas Chapter of the March of Dimes Birth ^defects Foundation’s 1996 WalkAmerica on Saturday, April 13.
“I am walking to help build a brighter future for America’s babies,” Casteel said. “I am walking for someone I love, and for all the babies who will be born healthy as a result of March of Dimes research, education, and community programs, such as the Nett Egg Prenatal Care Incentive Program right here in New Braunfels.” Last year, over 75 walkers in New Braunfels raised more than $7,000. Funds railed in WalkAmerica over the past 26 years have totaled more than $800 million. During that bine, the March of Dames has achieved major breakthroughs for America’s mothers and babies inchiding newborn screening test for PKU to prevent mental retardation and toe development of surfactant therapy to treat respiratory distrere syndrome and help premature babies breathe.
The 26th WalkAmerica holds great promise for future generations by raising critical funds for such March of Dimes programs as:
