Local News


In an average week in Oregon, 906 babies are born and 89 of them are born too soon.

 

The annual "March for Babies" is in April, but the kick off event where  teams start forming is this Thursday.

 

Aimee Corey is with the March for Babies:  "The kick off is where teams captains from different companies and family teams come together and listen to families that have been touched by the mission through premature births or birth defects. And set goals for their teams. And then they go back to their companies or their families and launch their campaign internally for their team and set forth for that goal."

 

The original name, March of Dimes, began 75 years ago by FDR, who was himself afflicted with polio, and he wanted people to help with the research to get rid of the disease, which happened in 1959.

 

Corey says hundred of people are dedicated to the March and they encourage anyone who wants to find more to go to their website:  www.marchforbabies.org.
