Falk College child and family studies students took part in the OttoTHON dance marathon on the Syracuse University campus Saturday, February 28. A CFS student in the Child Life Specialist track, Lucero Andujar, was a key organizer for this event [she serves on the Executive Board]. She has a career goal of becoming a pediatric surgeon. SUNY Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital was the recipient of funds raised. Lucero has been working closely with Toni Gary and Children’s Miracle Network. Another CFS major, Nicole Autuno, in the Child Life Specialist track, also assisted with the event. Beth Nelsen, an alumna of Falk College’s nutrition science graduate program, represented the Department of Pediatrics/Golisano Children’s Hospital. The students’ efforts raised $84,013 for the Children’s Hospital.
