March for Babies Moms & Babies with Kelly

Grammy Award winning recording artist Kelly Clarkson made a stop after her appearance on American Idol this week to join in the Dallas March for Babies, along with her friends and 30,000 walkers, to support the March of Dimes and the mission of healthy babies on Saturday, April 16!

A March of Dimes volunteer and celebrity ambassador since her inaugural American Idol win, Kelly has walked in March for Babies in Nashville before. She and her fans have also been engaged in our mission awareness and fundraising campaigns.

On Saturday, she got to meet some special volunteers from Dallas who have supported the March of Dimes in a big way, including Cedric Allen and his family. Cedric is the #1 fundraiser for the Dallas March for Babies, raising over $25,000!

Kelly also spent time with top March for Babies teams and Ambassador Families who share their story and connection with the March of Dimes, encouraging others to get involved with this special cause.

After a special guest appearance on stage, Kelly and her friends joined the many Texans to walk a sunny five miles through White Rock Lake Park.

Mission signs and beautiful photos in honor and in memory of babies showed the way through the park, connecting all walkers to the reasons they were all out there fundraising and walking.

Many thanks to Kelly and her team for supporting the March of Dimes year after year, and for helping give the Texas March of Dimes event a special treat with her appearance!
