Kiss Cancer Good-Bye in Heckscher Park

Why are we having Kiss Cancer Good-Bye in Heckscher Park in Huntington?  Because we think it’s perfect.  
Situated around the corner from our office, and home to The Heckscher Museum of Art, where Dr. Gellerman is a member of the Board of Trustees, Heckscher Park has been a part of the history of Huntington since it was dedicated by August Heckscher in 1920.  
The pond that we’ll be walking around, known as Heckscher Pond, was once the source of power for a nearby thimble factory.  Heckscher Park is one of the town’s most frequently used parks in the entire town of Huntington.  It features many large outdoor sculptures.  
And we bet you didn’t know this: Heckscher Park is on the National Register of Historic Places!  
Sign up today to join our walk and help us support the good work of the American Cancer Society.

Kiss Cancer Good-Bye Sponsors are Signing Up – will you be there?

The Kiss Cancer Good-Bye team is excited to announce that a number of Huntington businesses have already signed up to show their support for our September 29th event!  

Munday’s Restaurant, one of Huntington’s favorite spots for breakfast, lunch and dinner, was the first Trail Sign sponsor for our walk!   Cactus Salon, located at the corner of New York Avenue and 25A will be at Heckscher Park on the day of our walk with $10 lavender hair extensions so we can show our support in the fight against cancer with a streak of lavender in our hair.    A Rise Above Bake Shop also has signed up to be a Trail Sign Sponsor – when you stop by to pick up your scones and cookies and cakes, you’ll see our flyer in their store. 

If you haven’t already registered to be a sponsor, or to walk, make sure to visit www.drgellerman.comand click on the Kiss Cancer Good-Bye page for a registration form.  Register before September 10 and you’ll be able to choose the size of your T-shirt!

We are working on creating fun activity tables for kids – let us know if there’s something that you’d like and we’ll try to use your suggestion!
