This past weekend, SHC associates participated in the 2015 March for Babies is the March of Dimes’ annual walk to promote a healthy start for all babies.
This year marks Kmart’s 32nd year supporting the March of Dimes® on its mission to prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Kmart is also celebrating its 23rd year as the national sponsor of the annual March for Babies® walks, which are taking place this spring in 700 communities across the country. As March of Dimes’ all-time top corporate sponsor, Kmart has raised more than $125 million since the relationship began in 1983.
Alasdair James, President and Chief Office Member for Kmart, participated in the walk along Chicago’s Lakefront on Sunday, April 26 in Grant Park. Alasdair thanked more than 10,000 walkers and then kicked-off the walk alongside the Jackson family, March of Dimes’ 2015 national ambassador family.
Congratulations to all the SHC associates who participated in their local walks over the weekend! Our members and customers are once again showing us that helping babies is a cause they care about and we are so very appreciative of their contributions, which, dollar by dollar, are adding up to millions again this year.
