In South Carolina, on average, 159 babies each week are born too soon. Premature babies spend many weeks, sometimes months in the NICU. Many have life long health and developmental consequences, many regain good health, and sadly, some do not survive.
The March of Dimes' March for Babies raises funds for research to increase the health and well being of premature babies. University of South Carolina's walk today was a student-led 2.5 mile walk fundraiser for the March of Dimes. The students did an excellent job with this first time effort.
