Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Graeclin “Bean” Russo joined up with the Syracuse University Women’s Soccer team this past weekend for a virtual 5K.

Russo signed with the soccer team back in October after the team learned of her story.

The Baldwinsville girl became the team’s youngest signee at 9-years-old.

Now, she has participated in a virtual 5K to help benefit her and Team IMPACT.

Bean — as she is so affectionately known as — is fighting a type of cancer called LCH for short.

Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams.
