You have a new teammate: Shaquille O’Neal

Posted by Linda

Shaquille O’Neal has joined our team as the 2012 March for Babies spokesperson! As our newest and arguably the biggest teammate, Shaq, as he is known, is asking everyone to go full-court on fundraising for March for Babies.

He is encouraging all his fans and Twitter followers to join him in supporting March for Babies. Be Shaq’s best teammate and do the same. With our online fundraising tools (OFT) and social media applications, such as our Facebook app, you can easily ask your friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances to support your March for Babies efforts and exceed your fundraising goal.

“March for Babies walks are a slam-dunk event for anyone who wants to help give babies a healthy start,” says Shaq, who is walking in Atlanta on April 28th. “I’m walking because I’m thankful that my children were born healthy.”

Whatever your reason for participating — whether, like Shaq, you’re thankful for healthy children or you had a premature or sick baby — the money you raise helps moms and babies in your community. With your help, we will find the causes for premature birth and develop ways to prevent it.
“I’m not used to missing goals — or baskets,” says Shaq. “So come out and bring your family and friends to a March for Babies event near you.”
