Buffalo Wild Wings Organizes March for Lacey

By Amy Ruimveld. CREATED Apr 16, 2014

The memorial celebrating Lacey Holsworth’s life on Thursday, April 17 will start with a walk from Buffalo Wild Wings in East Lansing to the Breslin Center around 5:15 pm. The staff of Buffalo Wild Wings will hand out purple ribbons for everyone who joins the walk in honor of Lacey.

The East Lansing Buffalo Wild Wings held a fundraiser in March for Lacey and her family, raising over $20,000 to help cover medical costs. The staff now would like "to see the Spartan community join together and walk through campus to show love to Mid-Michigan’s Princess!"

The Lacey Holsworth memorial starts at 6:30 pm in the Breslin Center and Lacey's family has asked for people to wear “bright colors and smiles--- tiaras optional :)”

Lacey passed away early in the morning on Wednesday, April 9 after fighting neuroblastoma, an aggressive childhood cancer for two years.
