Eli Manning Leads March for Babies in Manhattan

Super Bowl Champion is also a Champion for Babies

NEW YORK, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of March of Dimes supporters are set to join Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning on Sunday, April 27, when March for Babies, formerly known as WalkAmerica, steps off from Lincoln Center at 65th St. in Manhattan. Manning, who is the March for Babies Celebrity Chairman for New York City, will be joined by March of Dimes Foundation President, Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, CBS 2 News Co-Anchor, Maurice DuBois, and CBS 2 Reporter, Sam Ryan. DuBois and Ryan are co-hosting the morning program.

"I'm proud to be partnering with the March of Dimes New York Division," said Manning. "Everyone can be a champion for baby health by signing up for March for Babies." New York City's March for Babies Chairperson, Jane Chmielinski, lauded the Super Bowl MVP's involvement. "We are thrilled to have a champion like Eli Manning committed to our cause," she said.

March for Babies is the March of Dimes premier fundraising event that benefits all babies-those born healthy as well as those who need help to survive and thrive. Now in its 39th year, the March of Dimes walk event was the first in the country and last year raised over $117 million to support programs of research, advocacy, community programs and education. Other March for Babies events scheduled across the metro area include sites in Queens, Staten Island, Long Island and Westchester. For more information or to register, visit

Premature birth touches half a million babies and their families every year in the United States, including over 30,000 in New York State. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have lifelong disabilities. Babies born healthy need champions too, to assure they have access to newborn screening and preventive health care. The March of Dimes is there for all babies.

National March for Babies sponsors are CIGNA, Continental Airlines, Famous Footwear, Farmers, FedEx, Grain Foods Foundation, Liberty Tax Services,, Kmart, Discovery Health, Mead Johnson Nutritionals, Outdoor Services and Ther-Rx. The local Presenting Sponsor is CIGNA. The Official Media sponsor is WCBS-TV and local media partners include WCBS Newsradio 880, New York Post, FOX 5 NY, Clear Channel NY, NY1, NY1 Noticias, Univision 41 and Telefutura 68.

March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies. For the latest resources and information, visit or
