SOUTHAVEN, Miss.--Sheldon the turtle had a jam-packed weekend attending four events. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention walk, Halloween on the Square, Step Up for Down Syndrome walk, and a Pink Heals tour stop kept Sheldon from experiencing any dullness this weekend!

AFSP had their annual “Out of the Darkness” walk on October 19. Over fifty teams participated in the walk at Memphis Botanic Garden. AFSP will be featured at the February 28th game as the MVP (Money-Volunteerism- Publicity) non-profit organization.

After leaving Memphis Botanic Garden, Sheldon headed over to the Hernando Square to pass out candy to all the children at the annual “Halloween on the Square” event. He even met some trick-or-treaters dressed as turtles!

On October 20, Sheldon attended the “Step Up For Down Syndrome” walk at Memphis Botanic Garden. It was an action-packed afternoon with bounce houses, a petting zoo, and live entertainment.

Following the walk, Sheldon visited with some firefighters at Dobbs Ford during the Pink Heals tour stop. Pink Heals will be featured as the MVP on February 21st during the RiverKings Pink in the Rink night.

The RiverKings open their 2013-14 quest for the President's Cup at home on October 26 against the Louisiana IceGators.
