Thousands raised in march for babies

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Over 400 people put on their running shoes for special kids across Region 8.  Due to the weather, the annual March for Babies, originally scheduled for the Craighead Forest Park, was held at St. Bernards Auditorium.

Still,  organizers say the biggest event for March of Dimes went on with all kinds of activities for children and adults.

Participants of the march walked around the St. Bernard's Auditorium.  More than $110, 000  was raised today in the fight to save babies.
