BOISE -- Saturday, hundreds of people marched in Boise to raise money and awareness for prevention of premature births.

They came together for the March for Babies, which was held in Julia Davis Park. The March of Dimes put on Boise's march, which is one of 900 that will happen this year nationwide.

Money raised goes toward research and programs that help mothers have healthy, full-term pregnancies.

Marchers included individuals, families and companies.

We're always honored to be a part of it and contribute back and do whatever we can to give back, especially for babies that are born premature, said Debbie Boguslawski, who participated in the March.

The March of Dimes says since marches began in 1970, it's raised more than $2 billion to fight premature death.
