Hundreds of people put on their sneakers on Saturday to March for Babies in Duluth.

The three-mile walk raises money for the March of Dimes. The funds go toward research to prevent premature births and birth defects.

One group of coworkers has been marching for over a decade to contribute to that life-saving goal.

"We have several people on our team that have or know someone that lost their babies to premature things that could have been prevented possibly with further research," said Maggie Frick, the coordinator of Team Optum. "So it is really important to us. That's why we've been doing it for the last 10 years."
