Caring Kids Wear Blue Day

KIDS HELPING KIDS – Caring Kids Club at Purchase School Becomes Sea of Blue to Fight Pediatric Cancer

On Tuesday, November 26th, Purchase School once again became a wave of blue to help children with cancer. As they have incredibly done for the past several years, (led by their advisors Janice Varmon, Dana Lamari, Shannon Cipolla and Robyn Grossarth) the Caring Kids Club put in a huge amount of effort, time and energy to raise money for Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The kids made posters for around the school and also encouraged and explained to all of their peers the urgency of their mission. They asked every student and staff member to wear blue (the signature color of PCF) and to bring in a dollar or two. To date, the club has raised nearly $7000 for PCF. The funds raised will go directly to world renowned doctors to perform research, provide treatment, purchase state of the art equipment and provide patient/parent care at area hospitals. Stefanie Mittman, Medical Liaison and Harrison Parent applauds the Caring Kids Advisors for encouraging the students to understand how and why it is so important to ‘give back’. Mittman comments, “To instill the value of giving back at such a young age is remarkable and makes for a better world.”
