TAMPA (FOX 13) -

You can help save babies' lives! Come join the FOX 13 Care Force for the March of Dimes: March for Babies on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

Premature birth is the number-one cause of newborn death. It has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S. endangering the lives of more than half a million babies every year. That's why the FOX 13 Care Force needs you to participate in the March for Babies.

This is FOX 13's 29th year partnering with The March of Dimes and our very own Laura Moody and Mark Wilson will serve as honorary co-chairpersons for the event.

Come join many of our FOX 13 personalities as we walk in Hillsborough County at the Tampa Bay Times Forum at 8:30 a.m. and in Pinellas County at the Safety Harbor Marina at 9 a.m. 

With your support, the March of Dimes can continue to:

  • Fund research into how to prevent premature birth
  • Educate women about the signs of preterm labor and what to do if they have them
  • Provide information and emotional support to families in babies in intensive care
  • Assist heath care professionals to better detect woman at risk for premature birth
  • Advocate for expanded access to health insurance for mothers and babies
