Stony Brook, N.Y. - In the spirit of giving during the holiday season, Stony Brook Athletics took up a donation of toys this month to deliver to cancer patients at Stony Brook University's Cancer Center. The result was over 100 toys brought to the complex, and so it was necessary for athletics to "Stuff-A-Bus" to bring the toys over to the center. 

On Dec. 19, Stony Brook student-athletes, members of the dance and cheer teams, administrators and Wolfie gathered the toys, stuffed the bus and delivered them to the Cancer Center's Christmas tree, located right outside the pediatric oncology ward.

There, Wolfie and the student-athletes engaged with young patients who were receiving treatments that day. Each patient went through the group of toys to find the one that excited them the most.

The day was a joint coordination between Stony Brook Athletics, the Sunrise Fund and the Cancer Center, led by Athletics' Manager of Marketing Chris Murray and Certified Child Life Specialist Lauren Sharaby.

Stony Brook Athletics thanks all the fans, staff and student-athletes who donated to the cause.
