WalkAmerica marches closer
Other premature babies have not been so fortunate. Premature birth is the No. 1 cause of infant mortality, and one in four babies in North Louisiana are born premature. This is double the nationwide percentage of one in eight. Money raised from WalkAmerica will, among other projects, go to funding research for preventing premature births, educating women about the signs of pre-term labor and providing support to families of babies in intensive care.
