ALBANY, N.Y. -- The beneficiaries may not be able to walk yet, but over a thousand people were walking for them on Sunday.

Sunday was the March for Babies hosted by March of Dimes. It's an event that's been part of the Albany community for over 20 years.

Groups of teams came out to the UAlbany campus to show their support and to help raise money to improve the health of babies in the community.

Organizers said it's also about coming together with other families that have gone through the same circumstances.

"The Spirit of this is to get out here, get together with other people that have been through what you've been through. I spent 72 days in the NYICU with my son Logan, so to get back out here, see the families, and reunite is just incredible," said event organizer Erica Toth.

All the money raised goes towards funding research and programs to give babies a healthy start in life.
