Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, owned and operated by Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, is once again sponsoring the 15th annual Oswego County Hospice Cup Regatta & Walk/Run for Hope, which takes place Saturday, June 7 at the Oswego Yacht Club/International Marina.
The Friends of Oswego County Hospice is a nonprofit organization that provides financial support and relief to hospice patients at a time when they need it most.
In 2013, the organization raised nearly $27,000 and during the past 14 years, the Regatta has raised more than $275,000 to defray costs of non-medical expenses for patients and families, supported the hospice volunteer program and allowed for continued operation of Camp Rainbow of Hope, a free bereavement program for children who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
“Nine Mile Point is proud of our many employees who volunteer as firefighters and sports coaches, in parent-teacher organizations and a host of other capacities unaffiliated with the company,” said Nine Mile Point Site Vice President Chris Costanzo.
“Volunteerism and contributing to worthy causes are an integral part of the culture at Nine Mile Point,” Costanzo said.
The Nine Mile Community Council evaluates and responds to requests for aid from our surrounding community, focusing primarily on local needs.
