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.
