KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Nearly 10,000 people gathered in the Power and Light District on Sunday for the annual March of Dimes March for Babies.

The March of Dimes began in 1938 to fight polio. After a vaccine for that disease was discovered, the organization turned its attention to newborn babies. FOX 4's Carey Wickersham met up with one metro family at Sunday who credits the organization with saving their daughter's life.
