Go Over The Edge for United Way and Oishei Children’s Hospital

October 2, 2021 @ 9:00 am

WHY GO OVER THE EDGE? 20 stories, 2 great organizations.

United Way of Buffalo & Erie County and John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital have come together to improve health equity for babies, children and mothers in our region. But their work is only possible because of the community that supports them.

That’s where you come in. United Way is challenging the community to step up, face their fears and go over the edge to support programs, research and direct care that provide building blocks for a healthy future! Your support allows United Way of Buffalo & Erie County to invest in programs and initiatives that offer preventative care and health education for children and mothers and John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital to provide crucial life-saving programs and care. Together, we are building a healthier community, one child and mother at a time.
