JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Thousands of people came out for the annual March of Dimes walk. The walk took place at EverBank Field on Saturday.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health.

Each year in Florida, one out of seven babies are born premature.

The March of Dimes spends 76 percent of the money raised during its March for Babies event on research and programs.

Channel 4 Anchor Jennifer Waugh served as emcee of the event.
