Children's Miracle Network Hospital's national partner, Rite Aid, made a visit to Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital in preparation for their annual fund raising campaign and annual golf tournament. Since their partnership began, over $500,000 has been raised to benefit the sick and injured children and their families cared for at GCH. Pictured in the photo are store managers from Syracuse district 22419 as well as district managers and members of the administrative team. Thank you, Rite Aid, for making a difference in our community.

BEARS FOR OUR SURGERY PATIENTS
Stowell/Supermodified Racing, now known as the Stowell Bear Team, raises money to build bears at Build-A-Bear and donates them to the Pediatric Surgery Center. Each bear come with a birth certificate, an x-ray and a scrub outfit that is custom made by one of the 8 seamstresses on the team. Children are given bears before they have surgery and they name the bear and it is written on it's birth certificate. Upon awakening, the staff talks to the child about the bear. Focusing on the bears helps the children be less afraid during their surgical experience.
