The Atlanta St. Jude Walk Run event, held on Saturday September 24th, raised over $270,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The day was filled with smiles from teams and individuals all with the same goal, to end childhood cancer. Park’NTicket Airport Parking was thrilled to be a local sponsor hosting the Kids Zone for the 3rd year.
Kids and adults found themselves getting silly and having fun at the Kids Zone. We served up free cotton candy, raising energy levels for everyone making the 5k hike. Everywhere you looked, you would see kids with super hero, animal, and princess faces! We love to provide a local talented face painting artist who always does a phenomenal job. Kids also received super hero sunglasses to show off their super hero powers!
The Park’N Ticket photo booth was the most popular spot in the Kids Zone, letting participants choose their props and get silly while capturing a fun memento from the day. The theme was appropriately “super hero”, as each participant raised money for St. Jude, making them all our hero. We even had a special visit from Superman and Batman, who graciously posed with the real heroes.
We had so much fun giving away a free iPad Air 2. The winning name was announced on stage by our Park’N Ticket general manager, Diane, with her granddaughter. The event is very special for them as they remember their nephew, Ernie.
Our entire Park’N Ticket team is inspired by all the heroes involved in St. Jude. We have all have one goal, to end childhood cancer. Thank you for supporting St. Jude!
