FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – March of Dimes hosted its annual March for Babies on Saturday at Headwaters Park.

The walk raises money to fund important research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and give hope to the families of babies born too soon or sick.

More than 50 teams from Fort Wayne area businesses and organizations participated in the event, including UAW Local 2209, Parkview Health, Bluffton Regional Medical Center, Walgreens, Micropulse, State Farm Insurance, GM, BF Goodrich, Kohls and IAB.

Ashley Brzezinski, a March of Dimes supporter, said the cause is near and dear to her heart because her son was born at 28 weeks old.

“The advancements that the March of Dimes has made has helped us have a successful and happy kid,” Brzezinski said Saturday.

This is Brzezinski’s fourth year participating in the walk.
