(WBNG Binghamton) An upcoming fundraiser will help to raise money for children in need. Meghan O' Malley to tell us about it.

"On May 4 ( day prior to bridge run) we are doing a ' pick your pasta' fundraiser.

People can print the coupon off of our website WWW.aroomtoheal.org and choose from 4 local restaurants and when they present that coupon to any of the restaurants 20 percent of their check is donated to a room to heal.

Additionally, a room to heal is hosting our 2nd annual 5k and family fun walk on June 30tg from 5pm-8pm at otsiningo park.

Interested runners/walkers can register at our website.

Our mission is to create a healing environment in the homes of children affected by serious medical conditions in the Broome county area. Priority is given to children who are expected to spend a prolonged period of time in their home, and who can benefit from the environmental factors a healing environment can provide, both physically and emotionally. Our aim is to serve those families who lack the resources to create this kind of environment for their child."
