DENVER — An estimated 380,000 babies are born prematurely in the United States every year.
The March for Babies happens this weekend in Denver. The three-mile walk in City Park on Saturday helps raise money for the March of Dimes.
The organization is setting out to save babies and help mothers have healthy pregnancies.
A Superhero Sprint, designed just for kids, was held as aspiring runners and little NICU graduates wore purple capes while showing off their superpowers.
The superhero sprint is part of the annual March for Babies event held in City Park to benefit the March of Dimes.
In Colorado, nearly 6,000 babies are born prematurely every year. All of the money raised will fund programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies.
FOX31 anchor Deborah Takahara was the emcee of the event.
