Walkathon benefits medical center for kids

Citizen Staff Writer

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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
