Some charity runs begin with a shotgun, but the Syracuse University College of Law Ambulance Chase starts with the blaring sounds of ambulance sirens. Law students are once again organizing the lively Ambulance Chase to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Central New York. The 5K walk/run begins at the College of Law patio at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 26. The event is open to the public.
“The SUCOL Senate is very excited to partner with the local Make-A-Wish Foundation again this year,” says second-year law student Leah Witmer. “We hope members of the University and the community will come out to race toward making a child’s wish come true.”
Advance registration is April 14-16 and 21-23 at the College of Law. Advance registration is $10 for SU students and $15 for SU faculty, staff and the general public. Registration on April 26 is $15 for SU students and $20 for SU faculty and staff and the general public. Participants may pay in cash or by check, which should be made out to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Central New York chapter serves children throughout 15 counties.
