Welcome to Fighting
Faces Fighting Today for a
2014 Fighting Faces Calendar
I am happy to announce that the Fighting Faces Calendar has a new home at The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. It only seemed like a natural fit that children who are fighting cancer and other life threatening illnesses, team up with animals that are fighting and facing extinction.
The faces that appear on the calendar pages are children from central Ohio and the furry faces of the animals from The Columbus Zoo. The Zoo is focused on making a difference in the lives of the children fighting cancer and increasing awareness of animals facing extinction. The proceeds from the sale of the calendar have been donated to Nationwide Children's Hospital and the Columbus Zoo Conservation Program.
Familes face emotional and financial hardship while a child is being treated. The children highlighted within the pages of this calendar provide motivation and inspiration to all fighting similar battles. This is a unique endeavor as most cancer-related charities are aimed at research.
In addition, the Zoo animals highlighted in this calendar remind us of the importance of conservation. This project will support the Columbus Zoo Conservation Program which has already distributed over $4.3 million in conservation grants.
What started out as a project with the hopes of making a difference in the lives of these children, it is our lives that have been forever changed. Please join us in making a difference today.
