About the Rainbow Classic
Since the Rainbow Classic began, PCSD has raised over $500,000 for Golisano Children’s Hospital. Funds raised from this friendly cross-town competition have supported various projects at the hospital including Pediatric Intensive Care Unit patient rooms, the Child and Adolescent Eating Disorder Program, the Teen Lounge and more. Proceeds from this year’s Rainbow Classic will support the Pediatric Palliative Care Program.
The Rainbow Classic started as an idea of a parent, a student-athlete and a coach in memory of Park Road Elementary School student Katelyn Pasley. It later expanded to include the memory of 2002 Sutherland High School graduate Ryan McCluski. Both were patients at the Golisano Children’s Hospital, and the name for the Rainbow Classic was inspired by Katelyn Pasley who drew rainbows while in the hospital. The event now honors the memory of many Pittsford students and has become so popular that it sells out year after year as students, staff and families come together to support the Golisano Children’s Hospital and pay tribute to the memory of loved ones.
Boys and Girls teams are about 30 and then our cheerleaders is another 20, so about 50 kids in total.
They raise awareness in the community, help sell ads to corporate sponsors, visit hospitals when allowed (COVID).
