raising awareness

Part of The Gianna Effect Foundation's mission is to increase public consciousness about childhood cancer, and specifically osteosarcoma.

To accomplish this task, we placed fact-based banners around Brooklyn, NYC

in key high-traffic areas during childhood cancer awareness month.

Brooklyn Cyclones stadium

Maimonides Park is a minor league baseball stadium on the Riegelmann Boardwalk in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City. The home team and primary tenant is the New York Mets-affiliated Brooklyn Cyclones of the High-A East. Gianna was part of their dance squad, and they honored her with a tribute game in September (which also served as a kickoff even for The Gianna Effect Foundation).
