Frantz Laplante and other participants in The Haitian American Tree Trust's First Annual Walkathon Saturday received a commemorative plant when they reached the beach. The walk was held in memory of the 3 Haitian earthquake victims. More than 300 people marched from Lake Worth City Hall to the beach with the goal of raising enough money to plant 300,000 fruit trees in Haiti, one tree for each person who died.
