The third annual Macy’s Stroll and Roll will take place this Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Riverside Park in Batesville. All are invited to join the Kiwanis Club of Batesville in this benefit walk to support a cure for Angelman Syndrome. Angelman is a genetic disorder that causes developmental disabilities and neurological problems. The benefit is named for Macy Bryant, four-year-old daughter of Ronda and Josh Bryant, of Batesville. To date, Batesville Kiwanis has raised over $12,000 for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).
The walk will take place rain or shine. The participation fee is $25 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under.
Entertainment accompanying this year’s walk will include a River City Cruisers car display, Batesville’s West Magnet dance team, West Magnet majorettes, Independence Elite Gymnasts, an Ohana Fitness zumba performance and local singers. Children will also enjoy a bounce house and a petting zoo.
The Batesville Kiwanis Club was chartered in 1928 under the principles of Kiwanis International: to work for a better quality of life for the citizens of Batesville, Arkansas, our state, our nation and our world. The Batesville club charters eleven student-led active service clubs in the area, for elementary through college students. For more information about the club, please visit www.batesvillekiwanis.org.
