#213: Soar for a Cure

The Sunrise Fund is an organization dedicated to helping children with cancer and their families as they fight a difficult battle. Stony Brook University is a strong supporter of this organization with students, staff and faculty regularly volunteering their time at different events to fundraise or provide moral support. The Soar for a Cure event has a simple concept – flying kites and putting a smile on kids faces. Kate tell us that “over 50 SBU students volunteered to support ‘Soar for a Cure’ on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at West Meadow Beach.  Arriving early, student volunteers helped setup, registration, kite-building and flying, distributing snacks and beverages, hosting craft tables and circulating as costume characters. It was an amazing event supporting our SBUH Children’s Hospital – Pediatric Oncology patients and SBU’s Sunrise Fund.”
