St. Lawrence University Hosts 3rd Annual Shawna's Walk for Wishes

   With fundraising efforts from both the local community as well as many students from local schools and colleges the 3rd Annual Shawna’s Walk for Wishes was a HUGE success. Through this effort $10,000 was raised and at least one wish will be granted to a child in St. Lawrence County with a life threatening medical condition. To date, the Shawna’s Walk has raised over $32,000 for Make A Wish and has granted two wishes to St. Lawrence County children. Thank you to over 180 individuals, both students and community member who raised money and have helped Shawna make wishes come true.

   Thank you to Taylor Capuano ’14 and Anna Manning ‘15, who assisted in planning and coordinating this event as well as the entire Community Mentor staff. They were both amazing in organizing the volunteers, with the fundraising and many of the logistics. To Chi Omega, KDS, Circle K and other SLU students who volunteered the entire day on Saturday...THANK YOU!

The CCE would like to recognize a few individuals who made this event a huge success.
