Miracle Ride, Butterfly Run raise more than $200,000
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Two community events in May and June raised more than $200,000 for pediatric services and cancer care and research at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
“We’re so fortunate to have this wonderful community support for these events and for the children who receive care at our children’s hospital,” said Toni Gary, director of community relations for the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
• More than 1,000 runners and walkers participated in the 15th annual Paige’s Butterfly Run, raising more than $150,000 for pediatric cancer care and research at the children’s hospital. The event, held June 4, is named for Paige Yeomans Arnold of Baldwinsville, who died in 1994 following a bone marrow transplant for leukemia. Proceeds from the event benefit the Dr. William J. Waters Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at the children’s hospital. Since it was first presented, Paige’s Butterfly Run has raised more than $1 million to support a variety of activities related to pediatric cancers.
• The 17th annual Miracle Ride attracted more than 640 motorcyclists from Central New York who raised more than $50,000 to support pediatric services at the children’s hospital. Radio personality Rick Gary was honorary chair of the event. Miracle Ride, held May 22, is sponsored by the Foundation for Upstate Medical University. Since its inception, Miracle Ride has raised more than $1 million for pediatric care at Upstate.
The Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital offers a full range of general and specialty pediatric services, in a child friendly and state-of-the-art facility.
