We are so proud to announce that our 12th annual 4 MILER raised over $125,000 to benefit the Child Life Department of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital – the largest amount raised in the history of the event!
Nearly 400 participants, 20 volunteers, 34 sponsors, and 225 donors came together to support the 4 MILER, held at Sax’s global headquarters in Parsippany for the first time on September 30.
Sax is an avid supporter of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ. For the past eleven years, the firm has facilitated the 4 MILER at SAX headquaters run/walk event with 100% of dollars raised directly supporting the hospital’s Child Life Department. This year’s SAX 4 MILER will be held at a new location – our state-of-the-art headquarters in the heart of Parsippany, NJ!
The Child Life Department offers high-impact holistic therapies to their pediatric patients, including therapeutic play, non-pharmalogical pain management, art therapy, animal-assisted therapy 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 $800,000 since the 4 MILER’s inception in 2012 and have proudly become the largest financial contributor to the Child Life Department.
