Morgan Stanley Rec Day 2017

Posted by The Valerie Fund on 5/25/17 12:50 PM

On Sunday, May 21st, almost 400 Valerie Fund patients, their parents and sibilings attended this year's Morgan Stanley Recreation Day at Funplex in East Hanover, NJ. "Rec Day" is a day of fun activties for Valerie Fund patients and their families. The Morgan Stanley fundraising campaign supports two fantastic Valerie Fund activities: Rec Day and Camp Happy Times. Rec Day gives Morgan Stanley first and second year analysts the opportunity to meet and interact with the kids as they volunteer for the day.

  This year made for an incredible turnout with 100 more participants than usual. Rides were unlimited for Valerie Fund guests, and pizza and ice creams sandwiches were included in the day's festivities.

Morgan Stanley employees have given more than $3.1 million dollars to The Valerie Fund in the last 25 years. These donations help to support Camp Happy Times and the annual Morgan Stanley Recreation Day. This year, analysts raised nearly $180,000 for each of these activities.

 After their nine-year-old daughter Valerie succumbed to cancer in 1976, Sue and Ed Goldstein were determined that no family should have to travel great distances to receive state-of-the-art medical care. Today, more than 6,000 children with cancer and blood disorders benefit immeasurably by receiving their medical treatment close to home in a child-centered environment. The Valerie Fund ensures they do not have to rely on insurance reimbursements to receive a range of customized therapeutic services that enhance their quality of life.
