Zoo closed to the public for walk

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Zoo is closed to the public as over 7,000 people walk to support Cincinnati Children's.

The 8th annual Cincinnati Walks for Kids event will be held on Saturday afternoon to honor the patients, families and caregivers of the medical center with a half-mile stroll through the Zoo.

As a non-profit hospital and research center, Cincinnati Children's relies on events like Cincinnati Walks for Kids to help fund life-saving research, patient care and education.

When registering to walk, walkers can support the department or division they are most passionate about or elect to support the greatest needs of the medical center. All proceeds from the event help Cincinnati Children's provide hope and healing to the children and families cared for by the medical center.

More than 7,000 people are expected to participate in the 2013 event. Since its inception the walk has raised more than $4 million for the medical center.

The walk is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.

For more information about Cincinnati Walks for Kids, or to register or support a walker, please visit www.cincywalks.org or call 513-636-2941.

    Toledo has a long and storied history of hockey in the city going back to the first team, the Toledo Mercurys, who played their first season in 1947-48. Other iterations included the Blades, the Hornets, the Goaldiggers and the Storm. For a short time, in 1949-50, the team was actually called the Toledo Buckeyes.
