Halloween memorial event will raises funds for child with leukaemia

SIX NATIONS — For years the parents of Keely Hill, Scott Hill and Tammy Point, have put on a haunted Halloween memorial charity event to raise money for families or children in need of assistance when dealing with critical childhood illness.

Once again this Halloween season, Keely’s Haunted Trail is planning on frightening fun for visitors with an intense spooky hayride. Funds from this year’s event will benefit four-year-old Vaida Cornelius who has been recently diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

This is the sixth year the haunted trail has raised funds for families in need.

After losing their daughter 18-month old daughter Keely in 2011 to Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1, Hill and Point decided to fundraise to help pay off medical bills and build a Ronald McDonald playroom in Keely’s memory with the proceeds from fundraisers in 2013 and 2014.

The couple decided to continue with the annual trail to help offer funds to other families in need and began the Keely Louise Hill Foundation.

This year the event has added a Route 54 Tunnel of Terror. The trail opens on Friday, October 19 at 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. and will run Friday and Saturday evenings until October 27. A special “Devil’s Night” run will go through the trail Tuesday, October 30 from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m.

Keely’s Haunted Trail is located at 7493 Indian Line on Six Nations. The Wagon Ride is $10 and Corn Soup, Chili, Hot Dogs and Refreshments are also available.
