Charitable Relationship with the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation
The NEC SAAC has established an ongoing charitable relationship with the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Each winter, the NEC SAAC sponsors an annual fundraising competition amongst the twelve NEC schools, and the proceeds are collectively donated to the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation. The proceeds are presented to the Foundation by the NEC SAAC during its spring meeting, where the student-athletes also participate in a community service project to show their support for the cause (click here for photo gallery of 2011 visit).
"Giving back to the community is one of the primary goals of every athletics department within the Northeast Conference, and once a year our student-athletes come together as one team in support of the Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation," said Noreen Morris, Commissioner of the NEC. "The members of the NEC SAAC truly value the ongoing relationship that we've developed with the Foundation.”
