It’s not too late! Register now for the biggest glow party in the area and guarantee your t-shirt size! The Neon Night Fun Run is a month away, and the volunteers want to remind you that it’s time to get registered.

You can change the face of childhood cancer in Canada. Because of research funded by money raised at events like this, the 5-year survival rate has gone from 71 percent in the 1980s to 83 percent today. The Canadian Cancer Society has invested more than $3.1 million in pediatric cancer research in 2017 alone. That funding supported 39 grants and awards. And that’s all thanks to generous donors who support events like Neon Night Kemptville.

Neon Night Kemptville is a 2K and 5K non-competitive fun run that takes place, beginning at Riverside Park in Kemptville, on Saturday, September 21. Registration and the pre-party starts at 5:30 pm and opening ceremonies will begin at 7 pm. The registration fee is $40 in advance/$50 event day and $10 for children aged 15 years and under. You can also register as a family for $90, which includes 2 adults and up to 3 children. Register by September 1 to guarantee your T-shirt size. Join as an individual or as part of a team.

And, in one of the most anticipated events of the night, witness our Childhood Warriors being knighted by Olympic hopefuls. You can find more information and/or register for the event by visiting cancer.ca/neonnightkemptville.

Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related deaths in children under the age of 15. Let’s help put a stop to that together! Make a difference, register today for Neon Night.

Neon Night planning committee is looking for volunteers to help on event day. Volunteers are essential to the success of this event, and we need people to assist on the route, with registration and entertainment/activities. Anyone interested, please email cthompson@ontario.cancer.ca, or call 613-723-1744 ext 3620.
