If you want to dress up like a superhero and help out a good cause, you have a chance this weekend!
Today, people in Athens set up for the 6th Annual Superhero Day. The event is put on to raise awareness for childhood cancer research. There will be superheroes, games, vendors, food, and live music.
The people behind this event say often times childhood cancer research is put on the back burner.
David Hale has been a DJ for the event for six years. He said, “A lot of people think, well, I donate to the American Cancer Society, that helps. The American Cancer Society only gives 4% of the money that they receive to childhood cancer research.”
The event is September 14th at Big Spring Memorial Park in Athens. It will start off with a parade at 10:30 a.m. and go until 3:00 p.m.
The event is free, but they will be taking up donations. All the proceeds from the event will go to Eli’s Block Party. For more information click here.
