On Sunday, April 23, SUNY Cortland students showed up and showed out in the Cortland community for The Big Event, an annual community-wide clean-up.

We want to express our gratitude to SUNY Cortland for allowing us to participate this year and to the Girls Club Lacrosse team, GSA, and Cortland Cheerleading. The Girls Club Lacross team prepared our playground for the summer camp kids, and ten volunteers from GSA and Cortland Cheerleading helped clean up the Here We Grow Daycare Center playgrounds.

Their efforts not only made a difference in the lives of the children who will use these playgrounds but also in the Cortland community as a whole. The Big Event is an excellent opportunity for students to give back and show their support for the community that welcomes them throughout the school year. We hope that the dedication and enthusiasm shown by these students will inspire others to get involved in similar events in the future.

Thank you to all those who participated in The Big Event and helped to make it a success!
