GCHS Color Blast Will Ignite CCFK Support

Charlie’s Champions and the Miracle Club are joining forces once again to host the high school’s first Color Blast on Friday, May 20th to raise funds to support the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop University Hospital.

The Cancer Center for Kids provides early detection, diagnostic, intervention and treatment services. “It really is the go-to place for Long Island kids with cancer,” said junior Charlie Schmitt. “Quite a few of my friends and I are in remission, in no small part due to the care we received there.”

There is a long history of altruism among the high school students, especially for cancer causes. The Color Blast 3k race will feature an obstacle course to symbolize the hurdles of the pediatric cancer patients who are undergoing treatment. During the race, student, faculty and parent volunteers will douse the participants with washable, colored powders, which will mark them as CCFK supporters.

“All of us have been working on and looking forward to the Color Blast for months,” said Miracle co-president Alina Martinez. “We hope to raise a lot of money for the kids at the Cancer Center.”

There are four levels of “color” sponsorships available ranging from $25 to $200 to aid the students in their efforts to support the Center. Sponsors can contact Jennifer Schmitt to donate: jlschmitt4@gmail.com
