A Message From Nhuvia D’Alfonso

I walk for my daughter (a 29 weeker) and all the families affected by prematurity. On November 23, 2016 I gave birth to my daughter Stella at 29 weeks. Our baby girl was in distress due to a severely twisted umbilical cord and had to be delivered immediately. My husband and I were terrified to say the least, but thank God our baby fought through many challenges inside and outside of the womb. Our post partum course was unexpected and the hardest thing I've ever faced in my life. We spent 3 months in 2 neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Our time in both NICUs was filled with many ups and downs, but we got through with the help of family, friends, co-workers, strangers, and the AMAZING medical staff. This experience has opened my eyes to what many families go through.

Thanks to the generosity of the Ronald McDonald House and the surrounding communities we were able to stay close to Stella when she was transferred to The Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital due to respiratory failure.

Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley
Walk over the Hudson

SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2018  
1 pm - 4 pm
The Walk will be held Rain or Shine.

Join us as we Walk Over the Hudson on the Walkway!  
The Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge and spans 1.28 miles over the Hudson River from Poughkeepsie to Highland. We will meet on the Poughkeepsie side, walk across the bridge and back (approximately 2.5 miles round trip).   This will be a wonderful day to be outside and enjoy the amazing views from above the Hudson River.  

Please help us keep families together and close to  the care and resources they need when their child is hospitalized due to serious illness or traumatic injury.

Create a team! Invite your family, friends and co-workers to walk with you! Even if you can't join us that day, you can still support us and be a virtual walker.

WALK WITH OUR GRAND MARSHALL
Marlo Popi Doherty, 2 years old (from Lagrangeville, NY)

Marlo was born 4 months premature at 24 weeks. At just over a pound this incredible little girl, now turning two years old, put in the fight of her life to be with us and share her amazing journey. During her 170 day stay in the NICU, her family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley, which gave them the opportunity to be at their daughter's bedside every day and at a moment's notice. Please join Marlo in raising money to help other families in their time of need.
