AMARILLO -- A Perryton family has been named March of Dimes National Family Team Chairs for March for Babies 2014.

The McGaughy family will travel around the country to promote the March of Dimes.

Jennifer and Sam McGaughy's twin sons were born in 2008. They were 16 and a half weeks premature. Justin died later that day.

His brother Jake went home after 109 days in the NICU. He's 4. But his physical challenges remain.

March of Dimes helps raise money and awareness to help prevent premature birth and birth defects.

Amarillo's March for Babies is April 26, 2014 at Thompson Park. You can sign up at http://www.marchforbabies.org.
