“Yes we can can cancer” is the motto of the Adelphi University student athletes, who demonstrate their support for the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at Winthrop-University Hospital by collecting recyclable bottles and cans on campus and donating the proceeds to the center. Recently, a group of students visited the center’s state-of-the-science facility located at 120 Mineola Boulevard to present a check for more than $7,100 in support of the CCFK’s mission.
In addition to their dedication to academic excellence, with over two-thirds maintaining a GPA of 3.0 or better, Adelphi’s University Panthers proudly carry on a time-honored tradition of service. During the past several years, these young men and women have increased community and campus involvement in a number of special programs and Winthrop’s CCFK has been a grateful recipient of their efforts. Not only have the students helped fund the center’s programs, they have also increased campus awareness of pediatric cancer.
Recently the students and their families joined together with gym teacher, Diane Schubert, who had them running, rolling and laughing down all the lanes in the gym. It was evident that everyone had a fun time.
