Superhero-themed festival to raise funds for kids with life-threatening illnesses

GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — Families with kids who have life-threatening illnesses can enjoy an afternoon of fun at Johnson County’s Independence Park on Sunday with the superhero-themed Capes & Crowns Family Fun Fest.

The Indiana chapter of A Kid Again is hosting the fundraiser to continue supporting families and providing adventures for them to break away from doctor’s visits and hospital treatments. The organization hopes to reach a goal of $11,000 with the event from 1-4 p.m. Sunday.

The festival features games, crafts and activities for the whole family. People who come out can also check out the Yap Sona Arch, A Kid Again’s interactive and all-inclusive dance arch that was installed while collaborating with the NBA All-Star Legacy Committee.

Capes & Crowns is also a way to spotlight Mental Health Awareness Month, organizers said.
