A Lake Villa resident is hosting an Aug. 18 walk-a-thon in the village's Loffredo Park to help her 34-year-old niece who is need of a kidney transplant for the second time in her life. All funds from what Chris Schnitzer calls the Family Fun Day Fundraiser walk-a-thon will benefit Jamie Starks' medical bills. Starks, who lives in Douglasville, Ga., said she will visit Lake Villa with her two young children and most of her family to attend the fundraiser.
