The Graffiti Bridge helps celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The Graffiti Bridge is proud to announce our participation in the Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Pensacola’s own Cindy Bear Bonnor led the charge.  The assault on the bridge took place in the wee hours of the morning, and by seven o’clock, Bonnor and her team were gone. All they left behind was this lovely piece.

Bonnor works closely with the Pensacola Chapter of the National “Childhood Cancer Rally Foundation.”  

The foundation is staffed almost exclusively with local volunteers, this way 96 percent of all donated funds go directly to cancer research to help find a cure for our children.

The Rally has three signature fundraisers per year. These include, but are certainly not limited to:

Rally On The Runway.
Rally On The Runway, a fashionably chic date night filled with fashion, food and fun, is hosted by Nalley Automotive Group. Our brave Rally Kids are the highlight of the event, melting hearts as they walk the catwalk arm-in-arm with NFL players and celebrities, led by the event’s honorary chair Rally Spokesperson Vic Beasley of the Atlanta Falcons.

Delta Double Play.
Delta Double Play is a two-event weekend starting with a “Benefit Bash.”  Hosted at the Georgia Aquarium. Next, we move to the Aviation Sports Complex for the Brian McCann Rally Celebrity Softball Game. All proceeds from the weekend benefit Rally and its mission to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, a cure.

A Night of Music and Inspiration.
In American Idol fashion, they’ll perform in a live band for our celebrity judges: American Idol’s Haley Reinhart, Anthony Fedorov, Casey Abrams, and Clark Beckham. If you love live music from aspiring artists, Rally Idol is an event you do not want to Miss.

In addition, the “Childhood Cancer Rally Foundation,” are currently in the process of petitioning Congress for more NIH funding earmarked specifically for research into childhood cancer.

The Graffiti Bridge is proud to be part of this organized effort to help save our children.  According to the website, childhood cancer is the number one disease that kills children in a year.
