Thousands Support Premature Birth Through the March of Dimes

Every minute a baby is born prematurely, in nearly 50 percent of the cases the cause is unknown. That's why step by step, nearly three-thousand Lubbockites tried to change that. That's how many participated in the 2006 March of Dimes Walk America Saturday at Maxey Park.

NewsChannel 11's Pete Christy, his wife Keli and baby Bella are this year's ambassador family.

The money raised helps research premature births. The organization exceeded its goal of $230,000.
