Heart & Stroke Walk
The Racine/Kenosha Heart & Stroke Walk is Saturday, October 5th at UW-Parkside. It’s the largest fundraiser of the year for the local chapter of the American Heart Association. The director of the walk, Beth Grosman, explains what’s new this year and how they’ll celebrate survivors while motivating everyone to get heart healthy.
13-Year-Old Heart Transplant Recipient
Manny Rios suffered a stroke when he was just six days old. Doctors told his mom he wouldn’t make it through the night. He did. Then, at age 11, he had a heart transplant. Life has not been easy for Manny, but he continues to embrace it with a smile. Manny and his mother share their personal story and encourage others to walk with them during the upcoming Racine/Kenosha Heart and Stroke Walk.
Pop-up restaurants create quite the buzz in big cities. In fact, a recent survey of chefs shows pop-ups are the sixth most popular concept trend. The owner of SapSap, a local food business, is organizing monthly pop-up dinners in Racine as part of his “Uptown-Phon’k” series. Alex Hanesakda takes us into the world of his unique dining experience and shows us the Laotian food he’s cooking for the meals.
