Why we run: The Wooley twins

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Maximus and Isabel Wooley were born a month early. They are a part of the thousands of babies born too soon, too often, and often very sick in the United States. The need is even greater here in the Ark-La-Tex, where 1 in 4 babies is born needing extra help.

Ryan and Hilary Wooley never imagined their babies would end up in intensive care. Thanks to March of Dimes research, the twins are now at home after a week in intensive care.
