Kids organize walkathon to benefit Diamond Children’s Medical Center

Coyote Trail and Rattlesnake Ridge elementary school students have organized a walkathon to benefit the Diamond Children’s Medical Center at University Medical Center.

The 3-mile walk will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday at Coyote Trail Elementary School, 8000 N. Silverbell Road.

Those who participate will walk from Coyote Trail to Rattlesnake Ridge Elementary School, 8500 N. Continental Loop Drive.

“This is a wonderful example of children making a difference,” says Vicki Began, vice president for Women and Children’s Services at UMC. “We are grateful for their hard work and dedication to help build Diamond Children’s Medical Center.”

The Diamond Children’s Medical Center is scheduled to open in 2010.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
