Brandy Rand of Sabattus and 15 family members and friends raised $1132 for the March of Dimes as members of the team “Walking for Carter.” Rand’s second son Carter (not pictured) was born on May 18, 2009 with primary pulmonary hypertension and anemia. He was put on a breathing machine and was not able to come home until 17 days after birth, said Rand. Carter Rand’s grandmother Terry Deschaine and aunt Nikki Bramlett walk in the background at right. Money raised during the 5.25 mile walk funds research and education programs that prevent premature birth.
