CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Hendrick Hudson Leos held their annual "Stay Awake-a-Thon" and raised $10,000 for the Cheryl Lindenbaum Cancer Center at Hudson Valley Hospital.
The "Stay Awake-a-Thon" is an annual event where participants form teams and set up "camp" at Hendrick Hudson High School for an overnight event. The teams spend the evening learning about cancer prevention and healthy living while raising money and enjoying music and other activities.
The event this year was held on Saturday, May 4.
In the past year, the Hen Hud Leos have also donated $10,000 to Happiness is Camping and the Kathleen Marks Foundation.
