Step Up For Kids, Rally Returns Friday Noon

(Step Up For Kids, Facebook)

When the Mayor of Casper proclaims Friday as “Step up for Kids day”, she’ll be calling for everyone to take to heart the negative impact of budget cuts on young children.

The awareness raising event, now in its sixth year, is designed to bring childhood issues and concerns to the forefront for policymakers and voters.

“Even now, in discussions, children are left out of the picture. People need to be careful, when budget cuts take place, where those cuts happen.”

Event Spokesperson Dianna Webb, says the idea is to get people talking to lawmakers and candidates about issues that impact children and families.

The Step up for Kids event, starts at 11:30, Friday morning, in the bandshell next to the Nicolaysen Museum. It continues until to 1pm and includes speakers and refreshments and plenty of space for the growing number who want to Step up for Kids.

The event is organized by a coalition of groups including Head Start, the Child Development Center of Natrona County, AppleTree Learning Center, the Casper College Early Childhood Learning Center, the Casper Family YMCA, Children & Nutrition Services, the Mercer Family Resource Center, the Social Work Division at UW/CC, and the Equality State Policy Center.

Refreshments are made possible by the Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies.
