KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nearly 8,000 people took part in the Annual March for Babies in the Power and Light District. Families braved the elements to support March of Dimes.

Families who took part in Sunday's march share a mutual appreciation for the research and services provided by the March of Dimes. Levi Pierson was born with a heart defect. He had open heart surgery at Children's Mercy when he was only six-days-old.

The Robinson family threw a party at Sunday's event for their miracle baby. Might Max weighed two pounds when he was born. He just turned two-years-old.

"Instead of gifts we asked everyone to give to the March of Dimes," Robinson said. "What better gift then to try to give back?"

The skies opened up just before the race started. That didn't stop many from marching on. They weathered the storm together as a symbol of the hardships they've endured and as thank you to the organization that helped them along the way.
