Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson and her Mom, Teri, have a Mother’s Day message for you in support of all moms and the March of Dimes!
You can also view this wonderful video on March of Dimes Iowa Sponsor Hy-Vee’s website, and look for a complimentary ad in Iowa newspapers on Sunday.
The March of Dimes wishes everyone – all of our walkers, sponsors, teams and amazing volunteers – a very Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you for all you do to improve the health of moms and babies everywhere!
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.
The moms were participants in a March of Dimes-sponsored group prenatal care program that has successfully reduced C-sections, preterm births and low birthweight babies.
