KCTV 5: First responders brighten kids' nights with Parade of Lights

By Grace Smith

First responders from both sides of the state line had a very special mission Wednesday night: make spirits bright for kids staying at Children’s Mercy.

Trista Tate, manager of patient family programs, said the Parade of Lights is truly a special event that they broadcast in every room throughout the hospital.

“They are going to line the streets, they’re going to turn on their lights, and they’re just going to send some holiday cheer to our patients,” Tate said. “Our patients are stuck here for the holidays, and it’s just a way for them to know that people in the community are thinking of them.”
