|July 13th, 2019 was the fifth year of Racker Rivals Big Red, a spirited exhibition hockey game at Lynah Rink. Over 2,000 people watched as former and current NHL hockey stars, Cornell alums, and our own local celebrities hit the ice to raise much-needed funds to support programs for children with disabilities in our community. This year’s game has raised over $130,000 and counting, bringing the total raised to $555,000 over the last five years. |
For over 70 years, Racker has provided strength-based support for individuals with disabilities and their families in Tompkins, Cortland and Tioga counties. Guided by the vision of a world where all people know they belong, Racker offers programs and services to more than 3,500 people, helping them to build lasting connections and lead fulfilling lives.
