The March of Dimes is thrilled to commemorate our special 20 year partnership with Cigna this year. A champion for babies, Cigna produced this super-cute & adorable video this year for March for Babies.
The video features Kaden Repoli, the 2014 March of Dimes Greater Hartford Ambassador, training for his March for Babies walk! Born almost four months early, Kaden weighed merely 1 pound 6 ounces. While in the NICU, Kaden received surfactant, a therapy developed with research funded by the March of Dimes.
We hope you enjoy this video as we appreciate our partner, Cigna, and their dedication to supporting the mission of the March of Dimes!
Once you register for March for Babies, one of the first things you’re going to want to do is personalize your fundraising page! This tells people why you’re walking and why they should donate to support you as you walk for babies. You can share a photo, a story, and more! Watch the video for some helpful tips!
I wanted to share this little heart-felt video with you. It’s a message from Sherri Shepherd, co-host of ABC’s The View and a big supporter of the March of Dimes and March for Babies. Did you know Sherri has been walking and raising money for several years? If you’re lucky enough to live around there, you can walk with her in LA in April.
March for Babies is a special cause to Sherri. Her son, Jeffrey, was born 15 weeks too soon in 2005 and spent many long months in the NICU. He has a 4th birthday coming up, is absolutely adorable and doing very well!
Sherri is walking for her son. And because she wants to help make sure other moms and babies won’t have to go through what they did.
Thank you Sherri! We love you!
