Uniting Against Lung Cancer's 6th Annual Kite Fly


Kites for a Cure


Kites To Glide, Soar over Cooper’s Beach in Southampton for “Kites for a Cure®”


Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s Sixth Annual Kite Fly Signals Start Of Another Hamptons Summer

Brings Families Together to Fight Lung Cancer


Southampton, NY  This Memorial Day weekend, Uniting Against Lung Cancer will host its annual “Kites for a Cure®,” a family kite fly to benefit lung cancer research on Saturday, May 26th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. (rain date May 27th) at Cooper’s Beach in Southampton. Over 1,000 kite flyers and lung cancer supporters are anticipated at the event, now in its sixth year.

“The Village of Southampton looks forward to the “Kites for a Cure” event each Memorial Day weekend,” said Mark Epley, Mayor of the Village of Southampton. “Everyone in attendance brings with them a hopeful spirit which is a source of comfort to those who have lost a loved one to the disease, or uplifts those currently suffering from lung cancer.” The event hits home for the Mayor, an Honorary Commodore of the event, who lost his father to lung cancer eight years ago.

Last May, nearly 1,000 people gathered on one of America’s most beautiful beaches, armed with kites bearing pictures and messages of remembrance and love for their family and friends. Uniting Against Lung Cancer was able to raise $50,000 in support of its mission of funding innovative lung cancer research.

“Kites for a Cure” is the most affordable family fundraiser in the Hamptons this summer. For a $30 donation at the event or online, guests will receive a high-quality kite which can be decorated on site with drawings, names, wishes, or messages to be flown in the sky over the ocean. A $300 donation covers a family of up to five flyers. All proceeds will go to Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s national lung cancer research grant program.

“Kites for a Cure is a wonderful event in that it gives families  the opportunity to come together on beautiful Cooper’s Beach to honor those affected by the disease,” said Linda Wenger, executive director of Uniting Against Lung Cancer.

Uniting Against Lung Cancer was founded in 2001 in memory of Joan Scarangello, a Southampton resident and non-smoker who lost her battle with lung cancer.  In just nine years, the foundation has awarded more than $8 million in research grants to find a cure for the disease that will claim an estimated 160,000 lives in the U.S. this year.

Lung cancer will kill more Americans this year than ­­colon, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers combined, and more women than breast, uterine and ovarian cancers combined. Yet it receives less federal research funding per death than any of the other major cancers.

Uniting Against Lung Cancer (UALC), a 501 (c) (3) organization headquartered in New York, is dedicated to finding a cure for lung cancer by providing funding for innovative research, and to raising awareness of the nation’s #1 cancer killer. For more information, please visit
