Medical Student Service Project Award Mayo Medical School AΩA Association Winter Warmth Festival 2009
The 2nd Annual Winter Warmth Festival is an event for children with cancer and their families that took place on Sunday, January 25th from noon to 4pm. It was held in the gymnasium at St. John's School, located in downtown Rochester, Minnesota. The festival is sponsored by Mayo Medical Students, AΩA, Brighter Tomorrows, an outreach to families touched by childhood cancer, and Camp Jornada, a foundation for pediatric cancer patients and survivors.
The complimentary event designed much like a children's carnival, provides cancer kids, their siblings and families the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment and fun activities, free from the everyday struggles associated with their illnesses. Games and activities ranged from arts and crafts to a bouncy house. Food and drink was free of charge and open to all who attended. There were approximately 60 children who attended and over 100 individuals, and 35 medical student volunteers. This event was made possible by the AΩA service grant. We are gracious for their donation and the event would not have been possible without their help and support. Thank you.
