Annual Chalk Drawing for Cancer Awareness

Coordinator & Educator for Annual Project

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month marked by thousands of families, survivors and caregivers touched by childhood cancer.

Each fall since 2008 I have coordinated the creation of a community chalk-drawing project on the sidewalks outside Grand River Hospital. This evolving collaborative mural shares colour, design and form in support of and in celebration of successes in cancer research.

As part of the KCI community (150+ students & staff) supporting this cause, I am honoured and excited to have this opportunity to share our designs and art. Next year, when you see us drawing, stop by… And maybe add your mark for Childhood Cancer.
