Media is invited to the White Ribbon Project event on Sunday, August 22 in Garden City, MI from 11AM to 3PM. The outdoor event is open to all and provides an opportunity for engaging video, photos and interviews with participants who suffer from lung cancer.
WHAT: Dozens of community leaders and members will gather to make white ribbons in Garden City.
WHY: The White Ribbon Project is about changing people’s perspective on lung cancer. It’s about building a community where people talk about lung cancer and show they are not alone and are always better and stronger together. The Project was created by Heidi and her Husband, Pierre Onda. They started making ribbons in their home to raise awareness that anyone with lungs can get lung cancer and have since taken it on the road and have been traveling to states and making ribbons to hand out to cancer patients, cancer centers and local companies.
WHEN: Sunday, August 22, 2021
WHERE: 28409 Hennepin St., Garden City, MI 48135
Note: Outdoor event is welcome to all at the home of Deborah Pickworth.
