5th Annual Stay Awake-a-thon ,” Cancer Never sleeps and neither will we” For the past 5 Years The Hendrick Hudson Leo’s have Hosted the “Stay–Awake-A-Thon” a fun filled community event when teams of family, friends, and loved ones come together for a heart-warming, and moving experience at the high school while they enjoy ceremonies, entertainment, and activities for people of all ages. You can even camp out overnight. This event represents our hope that those lost to cancer will not be forgotten, that those battling cancer and their families will be supported, and designed to provide us with the tools to fight back and prevent cancer from spreading. The 2013 event will raise money for The Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation ( www.KFMFoundation.org ) a local cancer research and patient support Charity, Happiness is camping ( http://www.happinessiscamping.org/ ) a free camp designed for children with cancer, and Maria Fareri Children's Hospital ( http://www.westchestermedicalcenter.com/MFCH ) pediatric inpatient and outpatient oncology.
The Kickoff Ceremony is the official beginning of the Stay Awake a Thon to be held On February 5th 2013 (February 6th snow date) in The Hen Hud HS Library. At the kickoff, we will be celebrating with survivors, thanking caregivers, remembering those who lost their battle, and providing support to those currently battling this disease. This Year we urge our neighboring community Schools, Business’ and Groups to come and join us for a truly spectacular event and Help ups raise money for these worthy local organizations.
