The March for Babies took place Saturday, at Memorial Stadium. 

The event drew 150 teams and was expected to raise $179,000. 

Nikki Simpson is the March of Dimes division director and estimated 1,400 participants walked the two-mile “traditional” walk or a five-mile route. According to March of Dimes, the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today is premature birth, which affects more than 500,000 babies each year and they say that that number is getting larger. 

Funds raised by the March of Dimes are used for research, education and also benefits babies born healthy who need access to newborn screening and preventive health care.
