ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KPLR) -Kids got an early start on Easter at Queeny Park Saturday, during the annual "Hunt for a Cure." The Easter egg hunt helps raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society , which works to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma. They also reach out to help patients and their families.

This year, 60,000 eggs were hidden!

The Easter Bunny was on hand and kids also enjoyed face painting and a petting zoo.
