70s TV Stars reunite for March of Dimes

70s TV Stars reunite for March of Dimes

Years ago they were on our TV sets each week, playing a young, straight laced CHP officer and his often exasperated sergeant. This week they were together again to raise money for the 

March of Dimes. “CHiPs” star Larry Wilcox and his co-star Robert Pine were members of a team headed by local philanthropist Tom Schibusch who participated in the March of Dimes’ March for Babies in Victorville, CA.

Wilcox, 64, and Pine,70, were joined by the CHP and North South Machinery at the event. The March for Babies raises money and awareness to help premature and sick babies and help women have healthy pregnancies.

“North South believes that trust and integrity begin with establishing longevity in the community by walking the talk!” said Wilcox, who played Jon Baker opposite Erik Estrada’s Frank Poncherello in the long running hit show, which ran on NBC from 1977 to 1983.

Over seven million people will participate in March for Babies events across the country. Over 900 communities host these events, which have been held every year for the past 42 years and have raised over $2 billion to help the March of Dimes to work toward it’s goal of making every pregnancy and baby a healthy one.

Wilcox and Pine will reunite again along with most of their fellow cast members in Los Angeles this September. They’ll gather to celebrate the 35th anniversary of “CHiPs”s premiere on NBC.  For more information, visit CHiPsReunion.com. To find a March for Babies event near you, visit MarchforBabies.org.
