Celebrities Lead One Million Walkers and Urge Public to Support March for Babies(R)
Date:6/4/2009

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Celebrity volunteers who led more than one million people in March for Babies this spring are urging the public to continue to help the March of Dimes raise urgently needed funds for programs that help moms and babies.

"As a mom who had a premature child, I know firsthand the toll that premature birth can take. Give hope to babies and families by joining me in supporting the March of Dimes," says Sherri Shepherd, co-host of "The View" and National Spokesperson and California Chapter March for Babies Chair. Ms. Shepherd led the walk in Los Angeles on April 25.

The March for Babies raises funds to support research to find answers to the serious problems that threaten babies and community-based programs that bring comfort and information to families whose babies were born sick or prematurely.

The March of Dimes is making a special effort now to raise another $10 million so that all of the lifesaving research grants recently approved by an expert committee can be funded. Ms. Shepherd, along with fellow celebrity volunteers, is urging the public to visit marchforbabies.org to make a donation today.

Joining Sherri in Los Angeles were actress Camille Winbush, of the ABC Family series "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," the newest March of Dimes Team Youth volunteer, and longtime local volunteer and Latina superstar Dayanara Torres. This year, Nancy O'Dell, co-host of "Access Hollywood," and a group of Hollywood Moms appeared in a public service ad to support March of Dimes March for Babies.
