Stony Brook Medicine
Stony Brook, NY
All of Stony Brook partnered once again - the University, the hospital, the community - to participate in the Pink Glove competition as a labor of love. Last year's production brought such camaraderie, that there was never any doubt that we would compete again. It was a challenge to raise $2000 in a short amount of time, but this new requirement guarantees that all charities will benefit from not only the publicity generated, but with financial support. This project renews our commitment to promote awareness, to celebrate survivorship, and to make a difference in the breast cancer battle.
When we bring out the boxes of pink gloves, everyone starts smiling. The enthusiasm is contagious. The emotion is real. This shared experience touches us all - from the dancing doctors to the motorcyclist firefighters to the college marching band. Together, we CAN and DO make a difference.
