UPSTATE, S.C. -

Big crowds showed up all across the Upstate to support the 2013 March of Dimes Walk for Babies.  Even with cloudy skies walkers were able to get some exercise while supporting the worthy cause.  Teams and individuals raise money which help fund programs that help mothers have healthy pregnancies and research for medical problems that babies experience. 

Many members of the 7 On Your Side team including Fred Cunningham, Diane Lee, Malachi Rodgers, Jack Roper, Kimberly Kelly, Pete Yanity, Dan Bickford, Laura Thomas, Gordon Dill, Tracey Early,  Tom Crabtree, Amy Wood and Christy Henderson were walking in various communities across the area. Todd Summers and Megan Heidlberg participated last week in Greenwood.

The walks have been going on nationwide since 1970 and have raised $2.6 billion.  More than 7 million people are expected to participate nationwide by walking or sponsoring walkers.
