Winter Walk Raises Money for Children's Hospital

  • Text size: + -

Dozens of people set out for a Winter Walk for Strong Kids on Sunday.

It was the fourth straight year for the event to benefit the Golisano Children's Hospital. People of all ages lined up Sunday afternoon to start the short walk around the Nazareth College campus.

There were some indoor activities as well. It was all part of a charitable rivalry between Nazareth College and Saint John Fisher College called "Battle of the Beaks."

Organizers said it's a chance to bring students from both schools together to support a good cause.

"We collaborate, so both Figher and Naz students are here today," said Associate Professor Becky Fahy, "and we'll walk and then afterwards we have a lot of activities planned and both Fisher students and Naz students will be running those activities."

Money raised from the event goes to a number of programs at the hospital.
