Danville, VA- Not even the cold, heavy rain could stop Danville's March for Babies on Sunday.
Volunteers came out to Ballou Park to help make a difference in the lives of millions of premature-born babies.
The money raised by the walk goes to March of Dimes, which supports programs that can help mothers have healthy, full-term pregnancies.
The money also funds research into why certain pregnancy problems exist.
We spoke to a couple of people who explained why they come out each year.
"I'm definitely dedicated to the March of Dimes. I'm actually supporting GW again even though I've graduated from there," said Brittany Walton, a DCC Student.
"I have a passion for children and it really touches me to really just to see the kids in that state," said Donald Ray Hairston, the Nestle Team Leader.
Hairston has two little girls, ages three and four, who both have benefited from The March of Dimes.
