Children's Museum Tucson joins 'Beyond Event' with open doors

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

As the two year mark approaches, since the January 8 mass shooting, dozens of groups are planning a way to strengthen the community. 

‘The Beyond Event' is happening tomorrow throughout Tucson, with the ‘main event' happening at Armory Park, and the Children's Museum Tucson is getting in on the activities too, by opening its doors for free admission tomorrow.

All thanks to an anonymous donor who wanted to sponsor "a day of play" at the Museum.  All guests will receive a green ribbon, they are asked to wear that ribbon and pay it forward with a random act of kindness.  There will be a chance to do just that tomorrow. 

One of the things visitors will see at the museum is a huge 75-foot banner with the message  "We're with you Newtown. From your friends in Tucson, Arizona".  The museum is hoping people will add a personal message or sign the banner throughout the day tomorrow. 

One of the other activities many will see at the museum is the launch of a new weekly program called ‘We Wiggle'; it's a freestyle exercise class for parents and children 4 and under.
