In just four cities alone (Dallas, Nashville, Phoenix & Tallahassee), some 40,000+ people participated in this past weekend’s March for Babies!  While it was a little damp in some areas it was a perfect sunny day in others!  Whether it rained or not these thousands of volunteers, including Doug Hawthorne, the CEO of Texas Health Resources and Chair of the Dallas March for Babies (pictured here) got up early to show their support of the March of Dimes!

If you walked in one of the 119 cities that held a March for Babies last weekend share with us your pictures and stories – we love to hear from you and see what a fun time you had!  Once again, thank you to EVERYONE that walked last weekend and we look forward to seeing more friends at this coming weekend’s April 25 & 26 March for Babies events!

The March of Dimes Tennessee Chapter was thrilled to host Oscar winning actress and Mom, Nicole Kidman. She took to the stage to inspire the crowd and kick off the festivities at the Nashville March for Babies.

As the mom of a healthy baby, Nicole told walkers she was delighted to be a part of the Nashville walk and thanked everyone for braving the rainy weather.

Prior to the kickoff program, she spent some time with special families and volunteers.

The March of Dimes would like to thank Nicole Kidman for helping to make the walk in Nashville a big success!

Congratulations Kelly Clarkson, March of Dimes National Team Youth Ambassador, who walked the entire route with her team at the Nashville March for Babies yesterday!

Despite the rain, Kelly was out with her cute green umbrella and March for Babies hat and had a great time. Go Kelly! Thanks for all that you do for the March of Dimes year-round! She also got to meet some special youth volunteers and ambassador families and hear their stories and why the March of Dimes is so important.

In the photo you see Kelly with top youth volunteer Alexandra Wallace from the March of Dimes Tennessee Chapter. What an awesome experience for Alexandra! The March of Dimes thanks Kelly Clarkson for her dedication to our cause – and to her leadership with the Foundation.
