Shocktober Corn Maize – Get Lost for a Good Cause!

Cold Mountain 2017 Corn Maize design

Fight Children’s Cancer & Challenge a Corn Maize

Cold Mountain Corn Maize in Canton, NC has partnered with Aflac to raise funds for Mission Children’s Hospital, the only children’s hospital in Western North Carolina. Every year, the Cold Mountain Corn Maize creates an intricate design concept for the maze that often gives nod to the surrounding community. Many who visit don’t even realize that the twists and turns they are navigating through actually makes up a unique design that can only be seen from high above.  The design for 2017 ties into Aflac’s #Duckprints campaign, using social media to raise awareness for childhood cancer research, programs and treatment – for every shared #Duckprints on social media, Aflac will donate $2 to the cause – up to $1.5 million.

Get lost for a good cause and try your hand at the maize! There are also hayrides and other events happening throughout the month.
