Rally for Babies

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Billings Clinic hosted a "Rally for Babies" Thursday to help the March of Dimes. The Clinic will have a team in this April's March for Babies, which is the largest annual fundraiser for the March of Dimes. The money raised at the event will help families like the Laddusaws. Christine Laddusaw says her daughter Arabelle "was a 28-week preemie." Now four, Arabelle still deals with cerebral palsy. Christine says the March of Dimes research and behind-the-scenes work in NICU's was a huge help.

"In Montana, one-in-nine babies is born premature, so that's a pretty staggering statistic," says Maria Mares-Reed, the community director for the Montana March of Dimes. She says the organization hopes to raise nearly $150,000 at this year's March for Babies. The March is slated for April 26 at ZooMontana.
