RACINE — The Racine Heritage Museum's Heritage Walking Tour will return this summer.

Racine’s historic downtown area is the backdrop for the tours. Attendees will experience Racine’s rich industrial heritage in and around downtown, the lakefront and the Root River valley and learn about buildings that remain. They’ll hear about structures no longer present and learn the significance of the harbor area throughout the early years. Local volunteers will share local history and their love for Racine as they lead tours rain or shine. Some slight inclines are on the tour and benches are along the route.

Tour tickets cost $10. Reservations are required 48 hours in advance; go to or call 262-636-3926.

The Heritage Walking Tour program is made possible with the help of Real Racine and the Kiwanis Club of West Racine.

When Andrea Beaugrand-Jorgensen was diagnosed with colon cancer in February at the age of 39, there were things she did not have, like health insurance.

Working part-time, she did not have $800/month to buy into her employer’s benefits package.

However, as is typical of people who are genuine and kind, she was rich in people who loved her.

Beaugrand-Jorgensen’s friends and family did not want to just talk about supporting her, they wanted to do something really meaningful to ease her situation.

The first effort, a GoFundMe page, was launched in late February by Malacara and has raised about $23,000 to date, helping cover medical costs and also a trip for Beaugrand-Jorgensen to take to Disney World with her daughter.

And that was just the start of it.
