KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A weeklong event that honors three victims killed in an attack on two Overland Park Jewish centers expands.

IT’s been eight years since a gunman killed 14-year-old Reat Underwood, his grandfather William Corporon, 69, and 53-year-old Terri LaManno.

Underwood’s family established the nonprofit SevenDays to honor the victims.

Each year the group hosts SevenDays of Kindness. It encourages people to focus on a different mindset or behavior to help make the world a better place.

This year SevenDays expanded into Kansas City, Kansas and Wyandotte County. Unified Government staff are involved in different events and activities taking place through the next week.
