March for Babies Supports Infant and Mother Health

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA-- The annual Tri-Cities March for Babies brought out more than 1,000 people to walk for the good cause of helping support healthy babies.
At John Dam Plaza in Richland, people gathered after the walk for a celebration.

The March for Babies supports the national March of Dimes organizations that gives mothers help to have healthy babies and if there are birth complications they offer support.   

Sue Brendel lost her daughter Kate when she was just three days old.  

"It starts as a way to give back. You never want any other family to experience a loss, whether that loss is infant death or even just being in a NICU. You're supposed to have normal bells and whistles when you have a baby," Brendel said.

Brendel, along with family and friends, has raised $250,000 in the last 10 years in memory of her daughter.

March of Dimes researches health problems that affect babies and works to find ways to prevent them.
