Walking to raise money --- and awareness for the millions of babies born too soon.
The annual March of Dimes event was held today at the Minot State University Dome.
The March of Dimes mission is to help mother's have full-term pregnancies and researching problems that threaten the health of babies.
There are many ways to get involved with the organization.
Going on their website and making a donation is one way, but these annual walks are what brings communities together.
(Katie Soyring, Community Director, March of Dimes) "I have had teams raising money since January, to try, they set a goal, they try to beat it, they do promotions in their workplace, they ask their friends and family."
This year the teams raised 44 thousand dollars for babies and mothers in Minot.
