Siena Employees Receive Trustco Bank Award at Siena/SUNY Game

Nikki Carpenter, Katie Cooney-Lesko, Jim Eaton, Sarah Devoe, Noel Hogan, MaryKate Kraus, Allison Maloney, Norah Maloney and Robin Wojcik received the Trustco Bank Award at the game's halftime.

The team signed up to run a half marathon as part of the Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, the world’s largest charity sports training program in May 2008.
The Siena team was inspired to run by Alivia Lovell, the daughter of a colleague, who was diagnosed with ASL Leukemia when she was just two years old. After twelve weeks of training and fundraising, all 9 team members finished the Mohawk/Hudson Half marathon on October 12, thanks to their running coaches Meg, Dan and Danny, as well as their campaign director Robyn.
The team raised a total of $10,000 for blood cancer research, education and patient care. They are even happier to report that 4-year-old Alivia was recently released from Duke’s Children’s Hospital and came to cheer them on at the race!
