Cindy Crawford stuns in sequin jumpsuit during charity drive for family children’s hospital

Cindy Crawford is among a short list of ladies who truly help put the ‘super’ in the supermodel moniker.

And over the weekend she harked back to covergirl days, when she lent her famous face and name to help drum up support and donations for The American Family Children’s Hospital.

While making the rounds in Madison, Wisconsin, and then Chicago, the legendary supermodel struck a number of poses decked out in an eye-catching, sequin jumpsuit.

Crawford, 55, threw down some of her moves in a quick clip she shared on her Instagram page in the late afternoon on Sunday. 

While seemingly standing in the hallway of a hotel, she did a full circle twirl and then leaned her left arm against the wall, in a sort of mic drop pose.

Crawford paired up her sparkling ensemble with black heels, a clutch purse, and styled her dark brown tresses long and flowing past her shoulders with a part on the left.  

‘The end of a great weekend!’ she began in the caption. 

‘Big thank you to everyone who came out to support The American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin this week — we were able to raise over $1 million for the cause, and we are so grateful for the love.’

The American Family Children’s Hospital has had a special place in Crawford’s heart ever since her brother, Jeff Crawford, was treated there after being diagnosed with leukemia in 1975 when he was just two-years-old.

Back then the facility was known as UW’s Children’s Hospital when Crawford’s brother was a patient.        

While decked out in the flashy jumpsuit, the Illinois native also struck a pose while standing inside in a vintage red convertible car, and with her old friend and collaborator, David Yarrow.        

‘Loved joining my friend @davidyarrow this week in Madison and Chicago to support The American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison Wisconsin where my brother was treated for Leukemia,’ she shared alongside the two photos.

‘Nice to be home for a good cause — thank you David for including me in your American Dream.

During the weekend of charitable appearances, Crawford spoke fondly of the hospital who treated her brother five decades ago. 

‘My mother just felt more comfortable driving up here and it ended up being the perfect choice for our family,’ Crawford said, as reported by WMTV NBC 15, before adding, ‘Even though we lost my brother to his fight against leukemia we felt so taken care of.’ 

After gaining worldwide fame as one of the most recognizable faces in the 1980s and 90s, Crawford has dedicated her time and money to the hospital to make sure other kids are comfortable during their stay in the hospital and have a chance to beat cancer.

‘The type of Leukemia that my brother was diagnosed with was a death sentence, and it’s not anymore, and these kids are going on to have their own children,’ added Crawford.

During her time in the Midwest, the mother of two was able to spend some time with her father, Dan Crawford, in Madison.
