— Silvia Dominguez Vanni, Founder
MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — September 10th Gold Ribbon wrapped and adorned Police vehicles & motorcycles, MDC Fire Truck, the Gold Ride2Revive Lamborghini, the Batmobile and other SuperHero vehicles will be banding together in a monumental display of support for the bravest little Heroes battling the #1 disease killer of children in this country. The Gold Ribbon Parade will start at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital where over 75 Gold Ribbon vehicles will cover the top floor of the parking garage in view of the patient rooms where the kids will be eagerly looking out. Those children that are cleared to do so will join us on the ground to meet their local Heroes. The caravan will depart with lights & sirens blaring in an unprecedented show of Hope, Love & Support for families in the fight against Childhood Cancer. The Gold Ribbon Parade will depart Nicklaus Children’s and drive-by Holtz Children’s Hospital & Alex’s Place, the Ronald McDonald House of South Florida, and then on to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital letting children and families know they are not alone in their fight, that they have an army behind them, and at the same time raising public awareness of this very devastating disease. The Parade will end at the North Miami Police Department for a Luncheon of Gratitude hosted by the Mystic Force Foundation and the North Miami Police.
The Gold Ribbon Parade marks the Mystic Force Foundation’s 5th Annual Childhood Cancer Police Car Initiative and will again be led by Chief Juriga and the North Miami Police Department’s dedicated Gold Childhood Cancer Police Vehicle. North Miami was the first police agency to permanently keep their car wrapped in Gold and joins the Mystic Force Foundation at events throughout the year to bring joy and happiness to kids battling cancer. The Initiative was started by Silvia Vanni in an effort to bring more awareness to Childhood Cancer and the dire need for support and increased funding for Childhood Cancer Research. Every year this initiative grows larger and is the only initiative of it’s kind in the world, proving that South Florida is a true leader in the fight against Childhood Cancer.
The Gold Ribbon Parade is in support of all children battling cancer. This year it is in Honor of 7 year old Jeremiah Valera, a JR North Miami police officer, who joined us as a Survivor in the Parade last year. Although he has been cancer-free for over a year, he is now in another fight for his life, desperately needing a double lung transplant due to all the harsh treatments used to save his live. Jeremiah has been in Nicklaus Children’s Hospital for over 5 weeks now, his family will join us on the ground. The Parade is also dedicated to the Memory of Jacob Schwartz whose father is a Biscayne Park police officer and mother Helen, an Assistant State Attorney. Jacob who bravely fought Osteosarcoma tragically lost his battle with with the disease on August 6th.
