First “Nate’s Run for Smiles” to Commemorate Elie Rand ’08
On Sunday, April 29, the First Annual Nate’s Run for Smiles will be held at Cornell Plantations in Ithaca, NY. Proceeds from the event will support the Nathaniel L. Rand Fund of the Child Life Program of the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM).
The fund—named in loving memory of Nathaniel (Elie) Rand ’08, who drowned in a tragic swimming accident near Ithaca Falls in July 2011—will provide patients with age-appropriate activities, including play therapy, art therapy and music therapy, to assist in their treatments. The Rand family established the fund at CHAM as a way to honor Elie’s memory; Elie had spent a significant amount of time volunteering with the Child Life Program.
