ProPath, a pathology practice providing diagnostic services to clinicians and medical facilities nationwide, today announced that it will sponsor the 2013 Children’s Medical Center Holiday Parade.

Dallas, TX, December 05, 2013 --( Come celebrate the joyous holiday season with ProPath, Children’s Medical Center patients and parade fans at the 26th Annual Children’s Medical Center Holiday Parade in downtown Dallas, Texas on December 7th at 10 A.M.

The parade marches through the streets of downtown Dallas to ring in the new holiday season and help raise money for the Child Life Department at Children’s. This must-see event will include a variety of marching bands, fantastic holiday floats, Santa Claus, giant inflatable balloons of characters beloved by children and much more!

ProPath will be sponsoring the giant 50-foot Apollo balloon from Jim Henson’s Pajanimals. The team at The Jim Henson Company, creator of the Muppets, produced 52 TV episodes of the Pajanimals children’s program and Apollo is the loveable main character of the series.
