The Sitrin Stars and Stripes Run-Walk is one of the biggest fund-raisers of the year for the organization's military rehabilitation program. One of the biggest services they provide is care for those wounded warriors who have been injured in combat situations. They are doing something new this year that allows you to do something really special!

Team Adirondack Bank of Sitrin’s Stars and Stripes Run-Walk is hosting a Release a Message to Our Heroes fundraiser.  For a $3 donation, you can write a message to a loved one, veteran, a fallen hero or someone who is currently in the military, or just simply thank those who have given so much of themselves to protect our freedom.  The balloons will be released at the Stars and Stripes Run~Walk on Saturday, September 12, 2015 during the opening ceremony at SUNY POLY. You can still purchase a balloon and write a message if you don't plan to attend the event. The balloon will be released for you. If interested contact Kim Sullivan at 798-4039 x246 or you can purchase a message balloon at any Adirondack Bank location in Oneida or Herkimer County, Sangertown Square Mall, or at the Wounded Warrior Softball game at Donovan Stadium on August 8th.
