March of Dimes in Grand Blanc Township

Posted: Updated:
GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP (WJRT) - (04/27/14) - Hundreds of people took one step at a time to help in the March of Dimes annual March for Babies Sunday morning in Grand Blanc Township.

The March of Dimes helps women take charge of their health and support families when something goes wrong. The march is nothing new, but what is, is the increased success rate of survival for babies in the United States.

ABC12's Leslie Toldo joined the march Sunday. She spoke with the chairman of the board of the Genesee County chapter of March of Dimes, Valerie Southfall, who says people taking part in the march are actually saving lives.

"Genesee County has always been very enthusiastic about this event," Southfall said. "People in this community are making a great difference."
