SARATOGA SPRINGS – Pictured in front of a mural of more than 1,000 images collected from the first 10 years of the Cantina Kids Fun Run, members of the Cantina Kids Fun Run Committee presented Saratoga Hospital with a check for $76,758. The proceeds were raised at the 10th annual event held in June.
The Cantina Fun Run was created to support emergency medical services at Saratoga Hospital and increase awareness of the importance of pediatric emergency care. In 2015, its mission was expanded to also provide support for pediatric care at Saratoga Community Health Center. The photomontage mural celebrates 10 years of local kids helping kids, and is located in the Emergency Department lobby at Saratoga Hospital.
