Crowds gathered in Woodstock City Park on April 12, for sunshine, blue skies and the 3rd Annual Hunter’s Helping Hands Family Fun Day.

As of press time, the event raised more than $12,000, which benefits the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, a nonprofit on a mission to end the challenges of childhood brain tumors.

Founders of Hunter’s Helping Hands, Jennifer and Brian Duke, lost their daughter, Hunter, to a childhood brain tumor at age 5. Hunter’s photo display at the event served as reminder of the day – work toward a cure for the kids.

Activities ranged from “Touch a Truck,” organized by the Woodstock Fire Department, to monster water balls, waterproof balls – large enough for adults to go inside and “walk on water”,  and bouncy houses. Jake Moss Productions provided music, with a live performance by the Celebrate Recovery Band. 

Volunteers came from Kohls, Target, the Atlanta Ride for Kids Task Force, and friends of the cause.
