The incredible team led by Chris Arnold and Ellen Yeomans from Paige's Butterfly Run run came by with $240,000 raised in 2015 to support our pediatric cancer care and research. This gift is the largest made to pediatrics this year, and the largest gift from Paige's Run to date! Over the last 19 years, Paige's Butterfly Run has raised more than $2 million dollars to support our kids and families. We couldn't be more grateful and consider them to be an important part of our Upstate family. Registration for 2016's 20th Annual Paige's Butterfly Run will open on February 1.


The Upstate Foundation and Upstate Medical University leadership have combined resources to establish this endowment in recognition of Dr. Eastwood's outstanding service. Gifts are welcome.


Thank you, Syracuse University's Otto THON for an amazing dance marathon season! A total of $152,777 was raised in 2015 to benefit the sick and injured kids in central New York.
