Eddie Meath All-Stars Bond with Patients Before Big Game
Top Section V football players and cheerleaders took the time to bond with patients at UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital over some Abbott's Frozen Custard on Wednesday, July 2, all before their big east vs. west Eddie Meath All-Star Game. In its 32nd year, the Eddie Meath game continues to benefit patients at the children's hospital and has raised more than $150,000.
The ice cream social event gives players and participants the chance to bond with the patients they're playing for. "You can really see the patients light up when they see the All-Stars," said Betsy Findlay, director of special events for Golisano Children's Hospital. "Every player makes it a point to make a connection with a patient and you can see in the smiles how much it truly means to both parties."
