Michael P. Botelho & The March of Dimes

Let's get behind Mike!

Among the members of the Connecticut Republican State Central Committee is a straight-arrow egghead type named Mike Botelho.

Mike doesn't say much.
He's one of those deep thinker sort of fellows who uses words precisely and sparingly.


The party recently released a statement of core principles; several of us served on the committee to write it; and while all of our collective input is present in the document, Mike actually wrote it.

Last week Mike sent several of us a letter, which included the following:

"As many of you know, I am a member of the Board of Directors of the March of Dimes. March of Dimes is once again gearing up for its largest fundraising event of the year - "March for Babies" (formerly known as "WalkAmerica") to be held in April. This event raises money to help all babies get a healthy start in life. The proceeds generated from the walk will be used to support research and programs to combat birth defects, prematurity and infant mortality.

As someone whose family suffered through a difficult pregnancy with my eldest son, I feel very strongly about this worthwhile cause.

That is why I am asking for your help. My firm will once again be sponsoring a team for the Greater Hartford walk on April 27th. The walk will begin at the XL Center (formerly the Hartford Civic Center). Registration begins at 9 am and the walk starts at 10 am. The walk is 4 miles long. Walkers are asked to get friends, family and others to sponsor them.
