Walk in the 2013 March for Babies

Published On: Apr 05 2013 01:20:08 PM CDT


The March of Dimes needs help to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

In Texas, 1 in 8 babies are born too soon. Premature babies often spend their first weeks in the Newborn Intensive Unit (NICU) fighting for life, and often have lasting consequences such as vision and hearing loss or learning disabilities.

Walkers in the March for Babies give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money raised supports lifesaving research and community programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies and strong, healthy babies.

The 2013 March for Babies is set for Sunday, April 28, at the University of Houston Main Campus at 9 a.m. For Montgomery Country residents, it'll be held at Woodlands Church, Fellowship Campus.
