Hundreds participated Sunday afternoon (5/6/2012) in the annual March of Dimes for Babies Walk, which was around the campus at Middle Tennessee Medical Center. Photo below: A drum line set the cadance as walk participants streamed away. 

A spokesperson told WGNS News that approximately $25,000 was raised locally. The money raised helps to support research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives.  Photo below: There were some very touching and emotional moments at the annual march.    

The March of Dimes for Babies Walk gives hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money supports local programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. An incredible $2 billion has been raised nationwide since 1970 to benefit all babies. Photo below: It was a perfect day for families to get together and enjoy a leisurely stroll with a thousand or so close friends. Pictured are Matthew, Eloise and Kristin Carlton. Eloise was born at 24-weeks and just celebrated her first birthday. She weighed 1 pound and 2.3 ounces at birth.  

The flood of families went the approximately two-miles as a way to share their story and raise awarness and funds for the March of Dimes for Babies Walk
