Kmart and March of Dimes Babies on Broadway Rolls through New York CityPosted by Volunteers
Kmart and the March of Dimes hosted the first-ever Babies on Broadway event Wednesday, April 20, to bring attention to March for Babies nationwide! This city walk kicked off in Times Square with a crowd of volunteers, supporters, Broadway stars and little babies drawing much attention in front of a 12 foot replica dime supplied by Kmart, March of Dimes National Sponsor and Top March for Babies team! The crowd then walked together downtown to the Kmart store at Herald Square. March of Dimes 2011 National Ambassador, Lauren Fleming, age 7, and her family helped lead a great day on Broadway!

Katie McGee, Entertainment and Traffic reporter for March for Babies media sponsor station CBS 2 in New York, helped lead the Babies on Broadway send off! The event brought together Kmart and March of Dimes supporters to raise awareness and donations for March of Dimes, which works to give all babies a healthy start.
For 28 years, Kmart has supported March of Dimes and raised more than $90 million – and counting! This success comes with thanks to Kmart’s generous associates and customers. The 12 foot dime will be rolling into select Kmart stores across the country – just in time for a March for Babies near you!
