Tacoma walk raises funds for March of Dimes

Tacoma News TribuneMay 17, 2014 

More than 1,500 walkers, stroller-pushing parents, dogs and kids attended the March for Babies Saturday morning, which started at Wilson High School in Tacoma.

The $295,000 raised by participants will enable the March of Dimes to help pregnant women and new mothers get the information and support they need to have healthy babies. And if something goes wrong, the March of Dimes offers information and comfort to help parents cope with premature birth, a child with a birth defect, or the loss of a baby.  

The March of Dimes researches the problems that threaten the health of babies and works to prevent them.
