1st Annual Holly Jolly event a success

On 12/3/2022 the Foundation Board of Directors were joined by numerous volunteers from all over the country to bring the Holly Jolly Holiday Breakfast to Washington University in St Louis.  The Foundation funded the event through a $5,000 grant to the Campus Y at the University.  Megan was a long time member of the Campus Y team while attending Wash U, including holding the title of Finance Director as well as volunteering her time to be a Soccer and basketball coach to young children.  The event helped serve Breakfast with Santa to many who live in underserved communities in the St Louis area.  Children had time to meet and take pictures with Santa, play games, make "Magical Reindeer Food", sing songs and enjoy a hot breakfast.  

Pictures from the event can be found at the link below:

Charity 5K Donation Made to Connecticut Children's

The Megan Schulman Memorial Foundation made its donation to Connecticut Children's from the proceeds from the Charity 5K held in Hartford Ct at the Hartford Marathon on Saturday, October 8th 2022.  Thanks to incredible support at our Charity 5K event,  The Megan Schulman Memorial Foundation was able to donate $10,000 to Connecticut Children's Department of Vascular Anomalies, our largest single donation made to date.   Thanks to all those at Cigna, especially those from the Actuarial Executive Development Program, the many  who traveled hours to participate and help us, as well as the numerous businesses and individuals who chose to donate to our efforts to raise money in support of Connecticut Children's.

The Foundation Board of Directors presented a $10,000 check to Connecticut Children's Molly Dworkin and Summer Sivetz at their offices in Hartford, CT.  Pictures can be found in the link below.

Chemo Bag Support

Michele and Stu were on their way to Connecticut for a wedding.  After the plane landed and arrived at the gate, Stu overheard a women on the phone talking about how she only needed to get "a few more Chemo bags sponsored" to reach her goal.  Curious, they asked her for more information. Here is a excerpt from Christy Baldwin's email describing what she was trying to achieve:

To prepare for the holidays, I want to do a project to honor my
brother who lost his life to Cancer!  This would have been Christmas #38
for my brother so I’d like to try to get at least 38 bags to take to the James
Cancer Center at the OSU Wexner Medical Hospital in Columbus, OH! 

It didn't take long for the Foundation to offer our support of such a great cause that would support and show compassion for others.  We sponsored the remaining 9 Chemo bags and added an additional $250 to help Christy buy the blankets, notebooks, pens, tissues, mints, word search books,  decks of cards and chapsticks that she included with each bag.

We are honored to be able to support such a great cause.
