Water balloon fights help provide funds for cancer research

August 6, 2014 | By More

400-WATER-BALLOON-FIGHTMembers of the Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition have invited Historic City News readers to help them raise money for local pancreatic cancer research, and they have found the perfect northeast Florida way to do it — a water balloon fight!

Admission to this summertime charity event is FREE, although, donations are graciously welcomed. The day’s entertainment on Saturday, August 9th, centers on two major water balloon fights — one that begins at 12:30 p.m., for the children, ages 8-12, followed by an adult water balloon fight, starting at 1:30 p.m.

Doors to the activities will open at 11:00 a.m.; and, for those who prefer not to get doused, the Coalition has arranged for a bouncy house, music, raffles, food trucks and rock climbing. DJ “Vito” will be providing the music, and Hacker, from radio station 1010XL, will be the emcee. The event wraps at 3:00 p.m.

If you are planning to participate, the festivities are being held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, located at 960 Girvin Road in Jacksonville.

The goal of the FLPCC is to invest in local, yet world class, pancreas cancer research where our local neighbors can feel that they are part of the team and actually see and experience where their money is going and what it is accomplishing. With diminishing funding and the devastating nature of pancreas cancer the FLPCC believes in raising money in a transparent manner on a local level so that all can see the progress to cure this cancer.

The goal of the FLPCC is to invest in local, yet world class, pancreas cancer research where our local neighbors can feel that they are part of the team and actually see and experience where their money is going and what it is accomplishing. Our simple motto is this: “Local money for local world class pancreas cancer research.” Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition, Inc. has a Board with active committee members for the purpose of raising local money for local research. Pancreas cancer affects all demographics and 85-percent of those diagnosed will die within six months and of the remaining 15-percent only one-third have a survival rate more than four years. With diminishing funding and the devastating nature of pancreas cancer the FLPCC believes in raising money in a transparent manner on a local level so that all can see the progress to cure this cancer.
