Join 11Alive's Christine Pullara and march for healthy babies

ATLANTA -- More than 400 babies are born too soon every week in Georgia.

These babies' lungs, brains and other organs may not be fully developed. As a result, thousands of them do not live long enough to see their first birthdays.

On Saturday, Apr. 30, a legion of families and business leaders in Metro Atlanta and across Georgia will join together for the annual March of Dimes March for Babies, the nation's oldest walk fundraiser dedicated to preventing premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality.

"Every step we take, every dollar raised brings us closer to a day when every family will know the joy of a healthy baby," said Courtney Lewis, VP of global assurance services at AT&T and downtown March for Babies chair.

My kids love lip balm, especially when it smells like bubble gum. Its important to be careful about what we put on & put in our kids bodies. That's why we love non-toxic locally made Nattie's Naturals!
