Last weekend, more than 10,000 walked in the March of Dimes March for Babies to help fight preterm birth and give all babies a healthy start in life. Preterm birth is the number one cause of death for newborns in the United States, and babies who survive often face lifelong health problems.
Celebrity parents such as Nancy O’Dell, Dayanara Torres, Julie Bowen, Nicole Sullivan and Galen Gering marched for babies in this great cause on Saturday (April 24) in Los Angeles.
Nancy O’Dell, host of Saturday’s fundraiser, told Celebrity Baby Scoop about the importance of the organization:
I am so honored to be hosting the March of Dimes March for Babies. I’ve been associated with the March of Dimes for over 10 years now and, as a mother, this organization means the world to me. Every year in California alone, more than 55,000 babies are born too soon and too small and it is the March of Dimes which helps so many of those babies go on to lead long and wonderful lives. All babies deserve a healthy start and I am honored to walk for all those precious little ones!”
