Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson Invites Others to Join March for Babies

Posted by Volunteers

Shawn Johnson, Olympic Gold Medal Gymnast and March of Dimes Celebrity Ambassador, is inviting everyone to join March for Babies! Filmed at the legendary Coach Chow’s Olympic training center, Shawn speaks on why others should get involved.

Shawn and her family have a special connection to the March of Dimes mission. Shawn was born with an Apgar score of 0 – which is very dangerous for survival.

As a Gold Medalist and role model, she is now encouraging others to take the first steps in March for Babies to help give all babies a healthy start in life.

I had no idea that Shawn was a March of Dimes Celebrity Ambassador. This is great! What a fantastic cause.

I work for Reliant Energy and we are currently (through the end of April) donating $1 to MOD for every Facebook Fan and Twitter Follower. Read more here: http://j.mp/MarchofDimes1

I think it’s great of what you are doing. My best friend was born with a weight of 1 lbs. 12 oz. This is my second year supporting her, and I am happy that I am doing that for her, but right now I think that you are the real hero!

p.s do you acually walk in it? the thing said to join your team :)
