Proceeds of the third annual Saves for a Cure Game earlier this year will help create a toy and game room and an entertainment room for children awaiting cancer treatment at Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong Memorial Hospital.

The College at Brockport announced that the game raised $4,272 for the hospital.

Brockport was joined by the State University Agricultural and Technical College at Morrisville and the State University College at Oswego.

Together, they raised more than $10,000 for the cause.

In three years, Saves for a Cure has raised more than $17,000 to help fight childhood cancer.

Here are a couple of photos of the check presentation.

Todd has ensured that the funds will be used to update and repair the Child Life Room of the Galisano Children's Hospital, specifically the outdoor floor that needs replacing. Here's the site as it currently is...

A hearty "congratulations" to the hockey players who will be graduating from the College at Brockport tomorrow.

Thank you for all the memories you provided on the ice and good luck in all that you do. May you have a successful professional life in whatever path you, government, education, health, communication, maybe even hockey. If you work with the same character with which you played hockey -- and prepared yourself for it -- you'll do well.

And, most importantly, good luck in your post-college personal lives. May adulthood, parenting, and public service be fulfilling pursuits for you.

Keep us posted on your adventures. We look forward to hearing about your successes!
