Morgan Stanley Rec Day 2023

Posted by The Valerie Fund on


The 2023 Morgan Stanley Rec Day for The Valerie Fund was held at Turtle Back Zoo, offering a fun and engaging outdoor experience for all participants. More than 300 patients and their families were welcomed to the Zoo on May 7th by Morgan Stanley volunteers, and The Valerie Fund and Camp Happy Times staff. The volunteers welcomed the families and distributed the blue Morgan Stanley Rec Day t-shirts to the attendees. The families enjoyed lunch, rode the carousel, went on an African adventure and fed the giraffes,  interacted with sting rays and sharks in the Touch Tank, and rode the Zoo train.
