As part of the first MCU Shoot For A Cure event, Norman Kohn, acting president and chief executive officer of MCU along with Borough President Eric Adams; Gary Perone, Brooklyn Cyclones assistant general manager; Corey Fernandes, MCU vice president of Business Development-Member Relations; Dr. Madhavi Reddy, Brooklyn Hospital Center; and Gary Terrinoni, president of the Brooklyn Hospital Center, made the mega money donation at Borough Hall on Aug. 13.
“We are proud to work with Borough President Eric Adams, Brooklyn Hospital and our other partners this week to host MCU Shoot For a Cure and bring awareness to the fight against colon cancer and positively impact the lives of Brooklyn residents,” said Norman Kohn. Beep Adams added, “I’m so grateful for MCU’s corporate citizenship, as we team up to take on colon cancer.”
Generous givers shot baskets and signed the Wall of Remembrance in support of their loved ones who have been affected by the disease during the week-long event. More than 5000 participated, including the New York City Department of Education; the New York Police Department; the New York City Fire Department; New York City Votes; St. John’s University; the United Federation of Teachers and the Brooklyn Hospital Center. The donation supports free colon cancer screenings in high-risk areas.
