ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool High Schools using their rivalry to raise money for a good cause. Both battled it out with pajamarama events to see who could raise the most money for Paige’s Butterfly Run.
Students brought in spare change and wore pj’s to raise awareness as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month comes to an end.
On Wednesday, C-NS and Liverpool presented a check for $28,000!
“The kids just really responded and the community responded and we are just so grateful because it’s not money we expected but certainly money we can use to support the programs at Golisano,” said Chris Arnold, President of Paige’s Butterfly Run and Paige’s father.
Paige’s Butterfly Run raises money for local pediatric cancer patients, their families, and research programs at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.
