We had a blast joining in on GameOn Day in Wisconsin last week! GameOn Day is a day hosted by Gamerosity for children battling cancer, their families, friends, local nonprofits and communities to gather for a day of fun, encouragement and connection. Our Campus Crew Members at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee volunteered to help out for the day to bring beanies and smiles to the superheroes at the event!
LYM Crew Members set up a table at the event to personally give beanies to some incredible children who have battled or are currently battling cancer. Their faces lit up when they received a beanie of their own - some wanted to wear their cozy beanies right away despite the summer heat!
The Crew also shared our superhero capes with the children, and it was so fun to watch them show off their superpowers with joy and laughter! The Crew joined in on the games, nail painting, arts and crafts, dress up and other activities designed to make children smile.
One special winner also received a gift basket full of LYM gear: a beanie, our children’s book, an LYM water bottle and more. This gift basket was given to help with the raffle and benefit the event’s goal to help improve the lives of children battling cancer through the gift of technology gift packages.
We are always happy to be a part of local events and to give beanies and smiles to as many superheroes as possible. Your support makes events like this happen - thank you!
