2023 Stroll for Strong Kids and 5K

Brookie's Wookiees

The annual Stroll for Strong Kids Walk and 5K Run will be held on June 4, 2023 where Golisano Children's Hospital supporters will enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere full of activities. 

We have never fully shared all of Brooke’s medical journey because we were mostly just trying to make it through, but we have always wanted to find a way to give back to Golisano.

Not only did Brooke spend her first 170 days of life in the NICU at Golisano Children’s Hospital but she also went through a total of 8 different surgeries before she turned 2. Throughout her time there and even to this day, Brooke has received amazing care from everyone at Golisano and we could never fully articulate just how grateful we are to have a hospital like Golisano so close by that has given us the amazing gift of being able to watch her grow up and thrive.

Today Brooke is a happy and healthy 3 year old but we sleep better at night knowing that Golisano is just down the road and she still has a team of people there who make sure she continues to thrive.

If you are able to, please consider making a donation to our team or even better, joining us for the event (there will be matching t-shirts!). We would love to have our friends and family there to finally celebrate Brooke and how far she has come!
