March for Babies Brings Together Celebrities, Family Teams, and Companies to Help Improve Health of Babies
Date:2/3/2009

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A group of Hollywood's new moms have joined up in a photo shoot to show their support for March for Babies, the March of Dimes premier fundraising event that helps moms have full-term pregnancies and babies have healthy lives.

Volunteer moms including Nancy O'Dell (Access Hollywood), Julie Bowen (Boston Legal), Melissa Joan Hart (Whispers and Lies, Sabrina the Teenage Witch), Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon (Eyes), Diane Farr (Numb3rs), Kellie Martin (No Brother of Mine, Mystery Woman), Jenny Garth (90210), and Elisabeth Rohm (Law & Order) are all friends who got together -- some with their children -- to create a new March of Dimes public service campaign to raise funds and awareness, and to urge other moms to join the March for Babies.

"We're a team of friends, a network of moms who support each other through pregnancy and those happy but exhausting early months of motherhood," said Kellie Martin. "I walk in March for Babies and I have asked my friends and contacts to support March of Dimes, and we urge everyone else to join to give babies a healthy start in life."

The nation's oldest and best-loved annual walking event, March for Babies will take place the weekend of April 25-26 in more than 900 communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

The March of Dimes hopes to raise $117 million from the event in 2009 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.

More than 20,000 teams will participate in March for Babies nationwide, drawn from schools, clubs, moms groups, family teams, unions, large and small companies, and other organizations. Companie
