Kimmie’s Recovery Zone is hosting a family fun event to support Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Saturday, Sept. 23, Bell Tower Fort Myers will be hosting games, a mini zoo, face painters and more from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The event will also feature the first “Flowers for the Fight,” a community art project on paint-by-number canvases.

In 2022, the event abruptly ended due to Hurricane Ian. Their goal is to replenish the fund with support from the 2023 Clips for Cancer campaign to ensure more families have the support they need while their child battles cancer.

Nine-year-old Logan was diagnosed and being treated for a rare form of cancer at Golisano Children’s Hospital in 2022. Now he’s celebrating his hard-won victory with his family,

“Logan is one of our new cancer survivors. He rang this his bell earlier this month, and he’s super pumped. When people shave their heads, when they come out here, they’re like, ‘People did this for me? This is for me?’ And some of the kids say, ‘Well, I don’t feel alone now,'” said Amy Frith, the senior director of development for Barbara’s Friends at Golisano Children’s Hospital.
