About the event
About the hospital
Typically, more than 12,000 participate each year and help to raise more than $400,000. UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital is the only comprehensive health care and research facility for children in the Finger Lakes region. In 2020 due to the pandemic we have transitioned to a virtual event and will be following a virtual format again this year. We are hopeful in the future to be back at Genesee Valley Park to celebrate the children and families who have benefited from receiving care at Golisano Children’s Hospital!
From premature infants to adolescents, thousands of children are treated for a variety of illnesses and injuries that often cannot be treated elsewhere in our region.
Each year, 86,000 children from all New York State counties rely on Golisano Children’s Hospital for heart surgery, neurosurgery, and treatment of lung disease, cancer, eating disorders, and more.
We offer the Rochester and Finger Lakes region’s only pediatric neurosurgeon, pediatric plastic surgeon, pediatric surgeons, and so much more.
Each year, almost 800 children receive care in our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and more than 1,200 sick or premature newborns will visit the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Your fundraising efforts through the Stroll for Strong Kids and other exciting events improve the care of our children at Golisano Children’s Hospital, and ultimately improve a child’s life. Thank you!
