Calling all old and new Mia's Marchers!!! Many of you know the new Golisano Children's Hospital opened its doors last summer. Dave and I were invited to see the hospital. On our tour, we were shown a "classroom" for children needing school during their stay. The room plaque names a family of a former teacher that sponsored this classroom. At that moment, Dave and I had the same thought, "Why can't Mia's Marchers sponsor a room?"
Since the birth of Mia's Marchers in 2009, our team has raised over $50,000. That would have been enough to sponsor a room, but an opportunity never presented itself. Lucky for us, phase II of the hospital is still in progress. The surgical floor has yet to open its doors. We have agreed to raise other $50,000 over the next five years. We will be sponsoring a "surgical consult room". This room was designed for important conversations with families prior to and/or following surgery. The room in on the fourth floor and is 10'x10' in size. Having used surgical consult rooms for each of Mia's eight surgeries, we loved the idea of this sponsorship. After Mia's 13 hour surgery last year, the consult room has a deeper meaning to us than ever before.
So, let the fundraising begin. Gather your peeps and give us your shirt sizes. We are so excited and hope you are too!
Follow the link to join our team or sponsor a Mia's Marchers member. This year, and all sequential years until we meet our $50,000 goal, we ask that contributions go toward the new building. Under available programs, choose "New Building Fund" located under the "select a program" drop down menu. This will ensure it goes to the Mia's Marcher's room.
