Kickin' Cancer Goodbye Event Hosted by NGU

Tigerville SC (October 21, 2016) On October 22, North Greenville University (NGU) is hosting an event, Kickin’ Cancer Goodbye, to raise funds for the Greenville Cancer Society and to honor local cancer survivors.  

NGU student, Gabrielle Fanelli experienced a special loss in her family. The summer before Fanelli went to college, her grandparents we diagnosed on the same day with the same type of cancer. Both passed away from cancer in 2014. “Most people don’t donate to cancer societies because they don’t really know much about them. That’s why I created this event to raise awareness for all kinds of cancer,” says Fanelli.

Fanelli is now trying to spread awareness of, not only lung cancer but all kinds of cancer. She came up with the idea to have an event to raise money and awareness for the Greenville Cancer Society by joining NGU and the community in this effort to end cancer. With the help of NGU’s Director of Student Life, Billy Watson, this idea has become a reality. “It’s amazing to see how our student’s here at NGU are getting involved with the community, and I think it will be great to teach people about these local foundations,” says Watson.

The event is free to all and everyone that comes will receive a free Bojangles Gift Card. The event includes a flag football tournament where anyone can create a team to join online. Along with football, local artists like Polymath and Clemson University’s Tigeroar will be performing. There will be pony rides and vendors from around the Tigerville area to set up booths and food trucks. Students will recognize cancer survivors along with balloons toward the end of the event.

To register your team for the flag football event go to www.kickincancergoodbye.com or email Gabrielle Fanelli at gf092195@gmail.com.
