Walk benefits premature babies

Valdosta - Every week, 323 babies born in Georgia arrive too early. This weekend, South Georgians will put on their walking shoes to help prevent premature birth.

Valdosta's Walk America will be held Saturday to benefit the March of Dimes. The organization hopes to raise about $32,000 to help fund research for premature babies.

Publix Supermarket is sponsoring the walk, and has already raised more than $1,000. "We think that helping babies and helping children is probably one of the best things you can do," said Jeff Carter, Store Manager.

The walk starts at 9:00 Saturday morning at Mathis City Auditorium.
