May 1st - #LilFighter Day - Patrick Carr

By: Nicole Antonini

Let's Go Green May 1st!

May 1, 2015 was the beginning of what is now known as Lil’ Fighter Day! It all started when four hockey mothers wanted to bring a little boy’s friends together to show him the love and support he needed during his fight against cancer. The day turned out to be something magical and thousands of people joined in to honor our Lil’ Fighter, Patrick Carr. Those who couldn’t be at the event wore green to show their support. Social Media was flooded with pictures of people nationwide wearing green, in honor of Patrick and the fight against Childhood Cancer – the turnout was breathtaking.

This year we are looking to do it all over again - bigger than ever!

Although Patrick is no longer with us, his spirit lives on. So help us Go Green on Sunday, May 1st! Simply post a photo of you and your friends wearing green and post it on social media using the hashtag #LilFighter & #carrscrew ...it’s that simple! Help us spread awareness about childhood cancer and honor our Lil’Fighter, Patrick Carr.

After you read it please share it to pass the good word!
