'Kick It For Krissy' To Raise Money For Sick Gouverneur Girl
It started out as a zumba-thon to raise money for a sick Gouverneur girl, but it has blossomed into an event that encompasses the north country.
Madison Wilcox is organizing "Kick It For Krissy" to raise money for 5 year old Kristen Hays, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.
Wilcox, a Theresa resident who attends St. Lawrence University, says so many people and groups approached her to help out with the event that it grew beyond her expectations.
Among the many activities will be a pie toss, tie dying, face painting and a silent auction.
The fundraiser will be from noon to 4 p.m. April 7at the Newell Field House on the St. Lawrence University campus.
Donations will be accepted at the door.
