Thank you to everyone who has participated in Superhero Day for the last 10 years. We are thrilled to announce that Athens-Limestone Tourism is taking ownership of Superhero Day and will continue to grow it in a direction that blesses the community. We, Eli's Block Party, accomplished our goal of establishing a family-fun event that raised money for childhood cancer. The community responded with support and generosity. Together we have made a difference in childhood cancer by raising awareness in the community. The Athens-Limestone Tourism department has the experience and resources to take the event to the next level and really grow it. Information can be found at the Athens-Limestone Tourism website.
Golden Pinwheel Garden
September 1 through September 18, 2023
For childhood cancer month, we will place these pinwheels in the park as a visual exhibit of the Forty-six children that are diagnosed every day in the U.S. and the 2,000 children that die each year due to cancer. We want to create a powerful visual of 2,000 golden pinwheels to help us remember why we have Superhero Day. Please, consider helping us raise awareness of the number one killer of children by disease by sponsoring a pinwheel. The National Cancer Institute only gives 4% to childhood cancer and the American Cancer Society gives less than 1%. Help us fill the funding gap for what is needed for research.
