March of Dimes gears up for annual fundraiser in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The kickoff for this year's March of Dimes annual fundraiser took place at the Columbus Regional Conference Center Friday.

The event included speakers as well as video testimonials.

"Today's the day where we recognize families and families of the future. We let them know all babies can be born healthy and that one day, all babies will be born healthy. They will not be born premature and they can have a fighting chance. So today's the kickoff to let Columbus know it's time to get engaged," says Haley Henderson, chair of March for Babies.

The intent of the event every year is to get everyone excited about the upcoming March for Babies.
