Vernon-Verona Sherrill girls’ track team raises $1,800 for Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital

The Vernon-Verona Sherill girls’ modified track team has raised $1,800 for the Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital.

The money was raised through a fundraising campaign in which sponsors could donate money for each first-place finish the girls earned during their spring sports season. The girls earned 77 first-place finishes to raise $1,800 for the children’s hospital project.

“The VVS girls modified track team is to be commended for developing such an inventive campaign to benefit the Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital,” said Eileen Pezzi, vice president for development at SUNY Upstate Medical University. “We are grateful for the support of these sponsors and for the girls track team for supporting this important Central New York initiative.”

The Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital will feature private patient rooms and a separate hospital entrance for children. Also included in the plans are family dining centers and various play areas. A $15 million capital campaign to help pay for the children’s hospital was launched last December.
