CBS 2 at the March for Babies

The CBS 2 team participated in this morning's March for Babies in Lincoln Center. The walk, previously known as WalkAmerica, has been going on since 1970 and is organized by the March of Dimes to raise money to combat premature births and help premature babies. CBS 2 is the official media sponsor for the March for Babies.

NewsByte2 was at the walk and took these pictures:

Public affairs manager Sharon Persaud on the left, her assistant Karina Roa on the right, and Karina's parents in the middle.

CBS 2 meteorologist Elise Finch and sports anchor Sam Ryan.

The CBS 2 table offered coffee, donuts and tee-shirts to participants and fans.

Sam Ryan and Maurice DuBois chat with Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, fresh off his honeymoon, live on CBS 2 News Sunday Morning.

Elise Finch provided the forecast from the site of the walk at the corner of Columbus and 64th. Her CBS 2 HD umbrella tells it all.

Sam Ryan and Maurice DuBois hosted the 9:00 kickoff program, which included Giants quarterback Eli Manning. The walk started at 9:30.
