Bonnie and Jamie Barker with daughter Avery and March of Dimes Development Manager Paulette Burks talk about this weekend's Scioto Valley March For Babies in Yoctangee Park Sunday April 23rd. 

The Barkers are the 2017 Ambassador Family. Avery Barker was weighed just 2lbs 10oz when she took her first breath. That was 12 years ago. 

Avery is a student at Southeastern Junior High. 

The Barkers talk about their experience and what the March of Dimes research has done to help in the fight to prevent birth defects. 

There will be events for the kids at 10am in Yoctangee Park Sunday morning and the march begins at 11am.
