Albany- These South Georgians are warming up and stretching out to take a walk straight from their hearts. They're walking for premature babies and lending support to the March of Dimes.

March of Dimes Director, Tina Phipps says, "For the next three years, we're focusing on premature babies."

David and Reagan Fretwell had children who were premature. Their twins, Brock and McKenzie came six weeks early. Reagan Fretwell says, "It was really bad when she got to go home, but we had to leave him at the hospital."

Eventually, Brock did come home. Now, the Fretwell's say they are walking in honor of all of the families whose newborns are in danger because of early deliveries.

David adds, "If anyone had to go through this experience, they need all of the support they can get from families and the community.

And that's exactly what this walk was all about, giving support and hope to families who encounter near death experiences.
