HARRISON STUDENTS BAKE FOR A CURE
Cookies, cupcakes and muffins on hand over 25 groups of children nationwide took to the streets and fields on Saturday, May 18th for the First Annual Pediatric Cancer Foundation GIVE HOPE BAKE event. Event organizers, Noah (17), Zoe (16), Sophie (13) and Josh (12) Mittman of Purchase helped lead six groups here in Harrison. The all children-led event raised just under $10,000 to help kids with cancer and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to research, treatment, equipment and patient care. With first hand experience watching his mother run many PCF events herself, Noah, a junior at HHS commented “My siblings and I realize how fortunate we are. After hearing and seeing the plight of so many children with cancer we decided we could do something ourselves to give back.” His youngest sister Sophie states “We know our efforts are helping kids just like ourselves who are not in the position to help themselves currently. We are already planning the Second Annual Give Hope Bake to be bigger and better.” To make a donation, run your own bake sale or to get involved, call 914-777-3127.
