Adventure Park Hosts October Event for Breast Cancer Awareness: "Climb for a Cure"

September 29, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum is proud to kick it off with their second annual "Climb for a Cure" event on October 1, 2017. On this day, guests are invited to come to the Park and enjoy a complete climbing experience, knowing that 10% of ticket sales will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

"We did this last year, and it went great," said Matt Kanaga, the Park's General Manager. Guests can expect to climb, swing, and zip through trees, just like any other day at the Adventure Park, while supporting the worthwhile cause. "It's a great way for kids to gain awareness in an organic, natural environment," Kanaga reiterated.

In addition to the Climb for a Cure event, Park staff will be swapping their traditional adventure Park hats for pink baseball caps, in order to help raise awareness for breast cancer.

"The staff really gets behind it, and really enjoy being a part of it," stated Karen O'Halloran, the Park's Operations Manager. Guests are welcome to join the staff in solidarity by purchasing hats as well. 100% of proceeds from hat sales will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

No stranger to organizing charitable events, Kanaga, who lost his father to cancer, uses the Park's platform throughout the year to set up coat drives, canned food drives, and various other fundraisers. "It makes us proud," he responded, when asked about the motivation behind supporting these causes.

The Park will be open from 9 AM until 8 PM on the day of the event, and guests can purchase tickets online here. For those who wish to support the cause but cannot make the event, more information can be found at
