The Rochester Red Wings announced the Intentional Walk presented by Wegmans to raise money and awareness for children's charities. For one entire homestand, from 9 am-11 pm a Red Wings full-time or part-time staff member, or members of the community will be walking/running on a treadmill set up at Innovative Field.

The Intentional Walk will start at 9 am on Tuesday, June 11 and end with the final out of the Red Wings home game on Sunday, June 16. All money raised will benefit the Wegmans Child Life Program - Golisano Children's Hospital and RocDog.

The Red Wings have set a goal of eclipsing 500 miles during the 6-day walk.


In April 2014, the Wegman Family Charitable Foundation generously donated $7 million to the Golisano Children's Hospital. While $6 million of the Foundation's gift supported the construction of the new building, $1 million will be used to establish an endowment to increase the quality of Child Life programs, services, and facilities. In recognition of this gift, the children's hospital's Child Life Program has been renamed the "Wegmans Child Life Program." The generous support of the Foundation is further recognized on the seventh and eighth floors of the new children's hospital, where the Wegmans Child Life Zone is named in recognition of the Foundation's support.


On March 9th of 2021 RocDog was created as a Non-Profit 501 (c)(3) in the state of New York. The plan was simple. Create the Group and hope to find 3 Dogs that could be Certified as Therapy Dogs with their Handlers in the first 12 months. The plan was to support our community in any way we could. Then the dream was to hopefully grow the Group to 12 Certified Therapy Dogs and Handlers by the end of 24 months. Things have not gone to plan for RocDog. Our growth has been nothing short of amazing. In just 3 years RocDog has now grown to:

  • Over 200 Certified Therapy Dog Teams
  • Working in over 150 different places across Western New York
  • Making over 300 visits to facilities each and every month.

To become part of the RocDog does not require that you even have a Therapy Dog. Your desire to Serve in the Community is all it will take to get involved. Do you have a dog that you think could become a Therapy Dog? Contact us and we can help you evaluate your dog and assist you in finding the right training to prepare your dog for this wonderful work.
