Leap Towards a Cure Community Festival benefits Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center

WHEN:  Saturday, August 3
              12- 6 PM

HOSTED BY:  Andrea Henderson Memorial Fund and sponsored by KEYW Corporation

                  13800 Old Gunpowder Road
                  Laurel, MD 20707


The 4th Annual Leap Towards a Cure Community Festival includes FREE food, FREE games and activities, and a FREE exhibition hockey game featuring local National Hockey League alumni facing off against an all-star squad of alumni from local high school hockey teams. This year’s Community Festival features the special display of a rare memento: a PRS Guitar SE Dave Navarro guitar custom-painted with the logo of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and signed by the members of the 2012-13 Southeast Division-winning Washington Capitals team. Only three of these guitars exist, and one will be auctioned off after the completion of Leap Towards A Cure.

This guitar was made possible by a partnership between the Andrea Henderson Memorial Fund, the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Paul Reed Smith Guitars, and the Washington Capitals.

Saturday’s Community Festival is part of the four-day Leap Towards A Cure (LTAC) presented by Outback Steakhouse, Laurel, MD, a charitable event which fights cancer through hockey, art, and community. LTAC is operated by the Andrea Henderson Memorial Fund, founded in memory of Andrea "Froggy" Henderson, an art teacher at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, MD for more than three decades. Froggy served as faculty sponsor of the school’s club ice hockey team from 1998 until a cancer diagnosis forced her early retirement in 2009.

Attendance at this event is 100% free to the public. Donations are gladly accepted, and all proceeds benefit the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. The Andrea Henderson Memorial Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. In just three years the organization has donated over  $43,000 to the Kimmel Center to support cancer research.
