Kites take Flight for Childhood Cancer @ Shadyside Academy
Sep 25 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This is a free and open to the community event that is centered around a Creative Kite Competition.  We will have blank canvas kites for sale at $5 each or guests can bring their own.  We encourage guests to share their kites in memory or in support of a loved one, to share their school/community/organization support, etc.  WPXI’s Cara Sapida will be our emcee and local television personalities and meteorologists will be guest judges for the kite competition.  We are also looking forward to having the Mac & Gold food truck join us and other businesses and organizations.  We are in need of volunteers to assist in the day as well as any groups that may be interested in coordinating game play with kids (on field or small table top/carnival type games to encourage interaction with families).

Lending Hearts provides emotional and social support to children and young adults with cancer and their families through unique activities and community outreach.
