TALLAHASSEE, FL. (WTXL) -- This year marks the fourth tear the "Men in Labor" campaign has been held in Tallahassee, in an effort to raise money and awareness for the March of Dimes.

In all, there are 11 men who volunteered to wear fake pregnancy bellies for nine weeks at various fundraising events.

One such event was a charity golf tournament, held Thursday morning at Southwood Golf Club.

The men donned their bellies, grabbed their teammates, and hit the green to play 18 holes.

Many of the "Men in Labor" participants have been affected personally by a premature birth and feel this is a great way for them to give back to the March of Dimes organization.

"Bryce was born at 31 weeks so we've experienced so much through the March of Dimes," said Adrian Johnson, a Men in Labor participant. "We Learned so much through the March of Dimes that it's really been a help to myself, to him , and to my family. It's really been an inspiration for us to come out and do something like this."

The "Men in Labor" campaign ends when the men "give birth" on "International Prematurity Awareness Day" on November 17th.
