Kites against Cancer

39

 

On Saturday August 6th, 2016, the Canadian Cancer Society will be hosting Kites against Cancer at the Gananoque Secondary School from 11:00am to 4:00pm.  This event fun-filled family event offers something for everyone with vendors from all over Eastern Ontario, Multi-cultural Food Vendors and a colourful array of kites!

Kite Flying can be powerful and emotional, and is a time for quiet reflection and remembrance…a time to remember loved ones lost and to honour those still fighting cancer. The kites stand to represent freedom, freedom of cancer, freedom from illness….

Also highlighted will be a Survivors Ceremony to recognize their victory of beating cancer. Survivors will be given a balloon and will meet at the centre of the field and will release their balloon.

Families are urged to create or purchase a kite from local stores and decorate them as they wish. They can design their kites in memory of a loved one, honour a cancer survivor or show support of someone battling the disease.  Each kite can depict a meaningful message.

This event also brings the world together with the variety of multi-cultural food vendors. Come and taste the assortment of foods from India, Philippines, Caribbean, Latino, Britain, along with good old BBQ hamburgers.  The event is simple, affordable and tasty.  Event goers participate by purchasing as many. $1 coupons they desire. These coupons are then redeemed at participating Food Vendors at prices ranging from $1 – $10. There is a wide variety of tasty culinary samples for simple dollar coupons.

Date :
Saturday, August 6, 2016 | 11 am to 4 pm
