Actor Boris Kodjoe and his son Nicolas,2, attended the R Baby Foundation Mother’s Day Run/Walk in Central Park on May 10, 2009 in New York City. Boris’ wife, actress Nicole Ari Parker Kodjoe, and their daughter Sophie,4, were also in attendance.
Boris and Nicole participated in the walk in honor of their daughter Sophie who has a developmental disease called Spina Bifida. The R Baby Foundation Mother’s Day walk helped to raise awareness about infant mortality and the critical need for resources that will improve emergency medical care for all infants. All proceeds raised by Sophie’s Voice Foundation at the R Baby Mother’s Day Run/Walk will go to support the organization’s first research project – a surgical trial which has the potential to change the lives of children and adults with Spina Bifida.
