The March of Dimes in Amarillo will hold their annual walk this Saturday at Thompson Park starting at 10AM.

The March of Dimes mission is to help moms with testing so they can ensure their baby will be born healthy on time instead of prematurely. They not only help with research on a national level but they also come together on a local level as well.

The 2012 Amarillo March for Babies put on by the local March of Dimes will be this Saturday, April 28th beginning at 10AM at Thompson Park.

Director Vicki Brooks told ConnectAmarillo.com "Every baby is touched by the March of Dimes. From newborn screenings to the new-natal intensive care unit, these heroes save these babies every single day and their amazing people and we're happy to be associated with them."
