Want to be amazing like Spider-Man and do something in Atlanta to help combat cancer? Jump in next Tuesday to the Stand Up and Volunteer Day. It’s part of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s The Amazing Spider-Man™ “Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer” Day. Hands on Atlanta and the Office of Mayor Kasim Reed are helping in the drive to recruit volunteers. The day supports Stand Up To Cancer which funds accelerated and innovative cancer research. You can log on to www.BeAmazing2012.com to find out more information on the initiative in Atlanta and nationwide. The date is Tuesday, June 26th, from 10am-2pm, and Atlanta’s “Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer” opportunities are focusing on beautification projects at the Grove Park recreation center with the City’s Camp Best Friends youth participants.
