March for Babies raises awareness of premature births

Did you know one in eight babies is born premature?

It's the mission of March of Dimes to find out why that's happening, and to hopefully prevent premature births.

More than 500 people came out Saturday morning to walk four miles around downtown South Bend as part of the March of Dimes "March for Babies".

Many had their own stories of premature birth to tell.

The March took place at Four Winds Fields.
