GALLOWAY, NJ – Join us on June 2, 2017 from 8:00 am to 7:00  p.m. (OPEN to the PUBLIC after 3PM) as Cancer fighting superheroes invade our local elementary school, Assumption Regional Catholic School, where students will come together to fight against cancer.  The Ribbons of Hope event benefiting the AtlantiCare Cancer Institute and hosted by ASSUMPTION REGIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOL will take place on Friday, June 2, 2017 from 8:00 am to 7:00 p.m.

The Ribbons of Hope offers Assumption Regional Catholic School the chance to educate and involve students in a philanthropic event, while learning about cancer causes and prevention.  Students will become part of their grade level classroom teams with their teachers acting as Team Captains.  Together they will fundraise as a team and take participating in several fun, sprit filled events.

“Students at these ages have such a passion for learning, so what a better time to teach them about cancer prevention than now,” said Mary Ellen Schurtz – Principal Assumption Regional Catholic School.  “They learn together as a team about how nutrition, physical activity, sun protection, and tobacco prevention can help them avoid cancer.”

“This new and great event will allow our students to continue their philanthropic passion while creating a greater awareness in the fight against cancer,” said Mrs. Cindy Walsh, Teacher and Co-Chair.  “It’s an opportunity that engages our students in the fight against cancer and allows them to make a difference in their community.”

“This event will allow us to the opportunity to celebrate survivors; honors loved ones, and raise funds to help the AtlantiCare Cancer Institute fight cancer.  It will include an emotional closing ceremony that pays tribute to those for whom the cure did not come soon enough and for those who continue to fight so valiantly,” said Mrs. Cathryn Flammer, Advancement Director and Co-Chair.

Bags are being sold for $10 each.  They can be purchased at Assumption Regional Catholic School prior to and during the event.  The event is open to the public from 3:00pm – 7pm.  Form a community team, or just come out to see the fabulous auctions items and food vendors.
