Walking to save lives

YAKIMA, Wash -- Medical officials say premature births are the leading killer of newborn babies. That's why over 600 people turned out today in Yakima to raise money for the March of Dimes.

The volunteers began their day at Sarg Hubbard Park, and walked 5.7 miles this morning.

Over 80 corporate teams, families and individual walkers participated, raising several thousand dollars.
