Registration and the pre-party starts at 5:30pm and opening ceremonies will begin at 7 pm. The registration fee is $40 in advance/$50 Event day and $10 for children aged 15 yrs and under. You can also register as a family for $90 which includes 2 adults and up to 3 children. Register by September 1st to guarantee your T-shirt size.
Join as an individual or as part of a team. From Superheroes to Star Wars characters and puppeteers, there is a lot of fun to be had! Cheerleaders, a dance troupe and a circus act will also be there to entertain. This is an event you don’t want to miss. Witness our Childhood Warriors being knighted by our Olympian hopefuls. You can find more information and/or register for the event by visitingcancer.ca/neonnightkemptville
Last year, over 650 people came decked out in neon and helped raise over $65,000. Thanks to fundraisers such as this event, the CCS invests more in childhood cancer research than any other national charity. This year so far, $3.8 million has been invested in 34 different research projects on childhood cancer. There has been significant progress as a result of these investments.
Thanks to our city council, September will be proclaimed Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in North Grenville. Stay tuned for the date of the raising of the flag!
