GCC Relay For Life 2013

Suzanne Smith-Batavia, NY

Relay for Life is a global event sponsored by the American Cancer Society to help bring an end to cancer so that we can celebrate more birthdays.  On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, Genesee Community College, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, hosted the second annual Relay for Life.

This event had three parts; one where we celebrated the success of those who have battled cancer. The second is to remember those who lost the fight against this disease. The third was to fight back against the disease by raising money for the research it takes to cure the incurable. In addition, money raised is used to provide wigs and rides for those who are battling cancer and cannot afford the costs.

A variety of students from various degree programs participated in the walk. WGCC the Music FM college radio station was one of the teams that participated in the walk. WGCC Mighty Warriors, with the guidance of their teacher, Val Bello, assistant professor of communication, fought back with a vengeance by doing bake sales before and during the walk, as well as selling pizza and “Fans of Ann” bracelets to benefit the college professors’ cancer battle.

Joe Shepard and Suzanne Smith, co-managers of WGCC, JT White, sports director, Johnny Kochmanski, Lashay Winfield, Alan Worthington, Josh LoBello, Steve Petty , Steve Trinder program director and Val Bello, assistant professor of communications and Marina Cappellio professor of computer systems-network technology were among the team members of WGCC Mighty Warriors. Marina Cappellino walked in honor of Tim Hinz professor of information technology, leukemia survivor currently battling a tumor near his eye. Marina said, “This was a great way for me to show support to a colleague and friend for his courage.” “According to JT White the laps we planned were crazy sunglasses, chicken dance and water balloon fight; we did this to show our support for any GCC student, faculty and staff fighting this disease.”

Suzanne Smith one of the co-managers of the radio station, is a two year survivor of an incurable bone marrow cancer and is currently in remission; Suzanne and her two sons in picture below

Suzanne said, “My teammates are amazing on and off the air and their support for a cause something so near to my heart is something I will always remember; also we have an amazing teacher that lets us use our creativity in ways that helped us to grow into the students we have become.”

Johnny Kochmanski said, “The Luminaria Ceremony was the most touching for me and remembering my Aunt Sheila who died from cancer was a great way for me to honor her impact in my life.” Luminaria bags spelling out “HOPE” pictured below.

Steve Petty said, “I walked in memory of all of those lost.” According to Joe Shepard, “In all, the WGCC Mighty Warriors raised $140.00 in registration fees and with all donations including ‘Fans of Ann’ bracelets, bake sale and pizza and face painting  we raised close to $400.” According to Johnny Kochmanski, “This was an amazing event to show our support for all those fighting cancer.” Johnny was DJ for the event.

 The event ended with a beautiful display of Chinese lanterns

Spirit of Halloween Shines at GCC Event

By Joanne Beck jbeck@batavianews.com

BATAVIA — Organizers of a first-time family event this weekend had moderate expectations, Valerie Bello says.

They were not only surprised by the turnout but had to make a quick shopping trip as a result. The Halloween-themed event was to benefit Genesee Community College’s student-run radio station.

“We ran out of candy in the first 45 minutes,” said Bello, the station’s faculty adviser. “The students learn how to interact with the public. This gets them out into the community. They get a taste of everything you come across in broadcasting.”

A day full of trick-or-treating, prizes, bounce houses, pumpkin painting, popcorn, pizza and music, the event was “on par” with promotions put on by larger radio stations, she said. Her communications 102 class actually made sure that it fell into place and ran well throughout the day while another class worked on the sponsorship aspects in the spring.

“It’s a service learning project” she said. “We decided to do a more community-oriented event and for this to be a school event for students with children. In the spring we will plan for the next one. We’ll do this again.”

Their supply of candy for 250 people quickly ran out by mid-morning, she said. Students had to dash to the store for more. Some kids even dressed up twice to do a second round of trick-or-treating. They had to pay a $3 fee each time and got to enter a ticket to win an Apple iPad.

Emily Ganshaw definitely showed her two sides during the event. She first dressed as a devil with black accents and face make-up. Then she switched gears to become Cleopatra, complete with a gold headpiece and gold and turquoise jewels on her long ivory gown.

What did she like most during the day?

“The candy,” she said excitedly.

Her mom, Rachel Johnson, is an accounting major at the college. She said the day was fun and her group, which included friends, would come again next year. Since costumes can get expensive to buy every year, she has “tons of costumes” she has saved from prior years.

She also makes a special trip after the big day to get good deals.

“I buy them after the season. I got the devil costume … for 90 percent off when no one wants it in November,” she said. “The kids had a lot of fun; they were never bored.”

Suzanne Smith, a radio club member and communications major, also enjoyed working the admission table, she said. She noticed a lot of princess costumes mixed in with some ghouls, witches and pirates. A bone marrow cancer survivor, she’s already had her big scare. She is thankful for the support she received from the school community and likes to participate in GCC events.

Wearing her own Cleopatra outfit with long black hair and a bejeweled gown, Smith said that she had about 50 treat bags left out of 500 total. It was a good fundraiser for the station, she said.“This is how we keep our radio station alive,” she said. “The most fun is being on the radio. I love the rush that it gives me. I want to be working in communications and PR.
