Many take part in Baby Buggy Walk

SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - Lots of moms and dads took advantage of Saturday's beautiful weather to take part in a Baby Buggy Walk in the park in Sikeston.

Organizers want to promote exercise for the whole family and raise awareness about infant mortality.

"It helps keep our young kids with something to do and let them know that were there to support them," said Rose Mary Jackson of New Madrid. "And that there are somebody out here to listen and be there for you and help you."

More than 100 people took part in the walk.
