January 26 - 31, 2020
KrabbeConnect was invited to participate in Children’s week by Lennon Foster’s family. Children’s Week is the only annual event held in the state of Florida that celebrates and honors its commitment to children and advocates. This event was once known as Children’s Day, but the decision was made by the Florida Children’s Forum to change the event to Children’s Week to honor the multiple organizations who collaborate on children’s issues at the capital building in Tallahassee.
Children’s Week begins with the, “Celebration of Hands” event on Sunday, January 26th, 2020 at 4:00 pm EST. Tens of thousands of “hand art” will be hung throughout the Capitol Rotunda Sunday Jan 26th-Friday, January 31st, 2020 creating an amazing display of children’s art. Hanging of the Hands provides a visual that each set of hands represents a child who is impacted by the policy decisions made by the legislature. This event is key to the success of Children’s Week and a great tribute to the Forum’s initial vision and collaborative spirit.
KrabbeConnect invites you to participate in the, “Celebration of the Hands.” We would like to collect as many hands as possible impacted by Krabbe disease to raise awareness about this life-threatening genetic condition. Download the flyer below to learn how you can participate!
**Please Note: Handprints must be received no later than Tuesday, January 21st, 2020.
