There are 3 kinds of balloons:
Red Balloons signify supporters
White Balloons signify survivors
Gold Balloons signify lives lost
It gives me chills every year to see thousands of balloons floating through the air as people carry them on their walk. It's a sight to see.
Before the walk they have a carnival like atmosphere where there are clowns and jumpy things for the kids, there are all sorts of booths, and a very important part of the night is a memory garden for those to hang pictures, write notes and to reflect and remember those with cancer, have survived cancer and for those that lost their battle with cancer.
It will be a great night to celebrate and remember. Hope to see you locals out there!
