Heroes and Halos’ day honors those affected by childhood cancer

September 8, 2013


Heroes and Halos Childhood Awareness Celebration, an event for families affected by childhood cancer, will be held Sept. 14 at Fall Leaf Farm north of Eudora.

Ken and Marilyn Waldock began hosting the event at their 40-acre farm in 2009 to honor children who have cancer or have battled it.

Families have fun with paddleboat rides, wagon rides, carnival games, fishing, crafts and face painting. The event also includes food and live music. Near the end of the day, children who have cancer, have battled it, or have died from it will be recognized in a ceremony.

The event will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Waldock’s farm, 22652 Alexander Rd. in Linwood. In case of rain, it will be rescheduled for Sept. 15.
