Sax is an avid supporter of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ. For the past ten years, the firm has facilitated the 4 MILER at Garret Mountain run/walk event with 100% of dollars raised directly supporting the hospital’s Child Life Department. This year, we will be returning to Garret Mountain for our in-person event-and we are beyond excited to see everyone again!
The Child Life Department offers high-impact holistic therapies to their pediatric patients, including therapeutic play, non-pharmalogical pain management, and music therapy. These therapies are funded by outside support and shown to be highly beneficial in mitigating the negative effects of hospitalization, particularly for patients with chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness.
Together, with our event sponsors, donors, participants and volunteers, we have raised over $593,000 since the 4 MILER’s inception in 2012 and have proudly become the largest financial contributor to the Child Life Department.
