Proceeds from this event will be donated to Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy
Union College students are hosting the second annual Skate For Alex fundraiser at Frank Messa Rink in Schenectady, NY on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The fundraiser is held in remembrance of Alex Askenazy, a Union student who died at the school in October 2017 of sudden unexplained death in epilepsy. Friends of Askenazy and the Eta Gamma chapter of Alpha Phi Omega are hosting the fundraiser.
The group, which started the annual fundraiser last year, plans to donate the proceeds to Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, which funds research into epilepsy and the rare occurrence of sudden unexplained death in epilepsy.
