The Anthony Bates Foundation is coming back to Kansas in a big way!  On Sunday, September 29th we will be hosting our 13thannual Cardiac Screening Day at the K-State Alumni Center in Manhattan, KS.  Attached is our flyer and below, a link to our PSA video with Coach Bill Snyder promoting our program.  Please help us spread the word by watching our video, adding it to your website (if you have one) and sharing the flyer with your friends, too!

The screening is open to youth 12 & up & their families.  Even adults are eligible to have a heart test.  The program is FREE but we do ask for a nominal $20 suggested donation to keep the program going and support our efforts year round.  Your help in sharing the word with your friends, family & co-workers would be greatly appreciated.
Appointments are highly recommended.  We anticipate a full house and would like to accommodate everyone as quickly and smoothly as possible.  Below is the link to set up appointments:

Sunset Zoo’s Party For The Planet @ Sunset Zoo
Apr 19 @ 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Community members are invited to join Sunset Zoo’s Party for the Planet in celebration of Earth Day on Saturday, April 19 from Noon to 4:30pm. The afternoon will feature family-friendly entertainment including magician performances, a rock climbing wall, Zoo Ambassador Programs with live animal encounters, and much more.

 

 “Celebrating the beauty of the natural world is at the heart of our mission and Earth Day is a great opportunity for us to do just that,” said Scott Shoemaker, Zoo Director.

 Younger guests will also enjoy a kid’s craft station and facepainting inside the Nature Exploration Center at the Zoo’s entryway. And guests of all ages will have the opportunity to learn about beekeeping, local amphibians and butterfly-friendly gardening at one of the conservation booths sprinkled throughout the 26-acre park.

 

 

The Zoo’s keeper staff will highlight animal enrichment – activities they use to keep the collection active and healthy – in several of the exhibits, with a unique bear awareness demonstration planned at sloth bears. A faux campsite will be setup inside the exhibit; guests can watch as the bears are released into the space and explore their new “campground.” Volunteers will also provide bear safety tips for guests who may be traveling and enjoying the outdoors this summer.

 

 

Visit SunsetZoo.com or call 785.587.APES for more information. The Zoo will be open from 9:30am to 5:00pm on April 19; Party for the Planet activities will run from Noon to 4:30pm. All event activities are included in regular Zoo admission. Event held rain or shine. Overflow parking for the event is located in the fields north and east of the Zoo’s main lot.

We Are All Trayvon @ Forum Hall, K-State Student Union
Apr 22 @ 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The mother of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old whose fatal shooting by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida provoked a national race and justice debate, will speak at Kansas State University at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in Forum Hall at the K-State Student Union.

“We are all Trayvon” will be an educational and thought-provoking event, said Brandon Clark, coordinator of the event and program assistant for the university’s diversity office.

Despite the intense tragedy of loosing a child, Sybrina Fulton has turned her grief into advocacy, lecturing at college campuses across the nation. She co-founded the Trayvon Martin Foundation, a nonprofit organization to raise awareness of gun violence and help provide support and advocacy for families who have had relatives fall victim to it.

“The Trayvon Martin case was huge,” Clark said. “Whenever it’s brought up, it stirs certain emotions and gets people to talk and debate. This debate is about understanding why we believe what we believe. It is about being open-minded.”

Fulton’s visit comes almost two years after her son’s tragic death and the subsequent acquittal of the shooter. The event is free and open to the public and sponsored by the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity chapter as part of the historically black fraternity’s annual weeklong celebration. It is also sponsored by the Student Governing Association.
