The Council for Exceptional Children at Chestnut Hill College (CEC) will sponsor the Fifth annual “Lily’s Loop Walk,” benefitting Lily’s Hope Foundation on Wednesday, March 26, at 2 p.m. starting in the Rotunda of St. Joseph Hall.
The event is held in honor of Lily Driscoll, the niece of Sister Marie Bambrick, coordinator for Teach for America and Philadelphia Teaching Fellows at the College. Lily was born prematurely and has overcome many obstacles to live a healthy, happy life.
The Lily’s Hope Foundation supports babies, children and their families with urgent needs due to premature birth through involvement with the March of Dimes as well as helping families directly. Since Lily’s birth, , Lily’s family has worked closely with the March of Dimes to give back by fundraising to help other babies that share Lily's experiences. Students in CEC are making additional fundraising efforts for Lily’s Hope Foundation by selling raffles for novelty baskets to the College community and hosting a movie night before the walk.
