PHOTOS: Students Create Crane Mobile For Candy’s Place
In support of the National Crane Project, King’s College students helped build a mobile made up of 1,000 paper cranes that will be installed locally at Candy’s Place. Based on a Japanese tradition, the project aims to bring good luck to those who fold 1,000 paper cranes. A young man named David Heard from Easton learned of the project during his battle with cancer and set a goal to have a mobile of 1,000 cranes installed in every pediatric cancer center in the United States. Before he passed away in 2011, nearly 70,000 cranes had been made, and the project continues today with the support of his family. Alex Scalzo, A King’s student who was a classmate of David’s, suggested the project to the staff of the Shoval Center at King’s.
