Griffin’s Guardians raised more than $1,500 to provide “Joyride Therapy” for youngsters in treatment at the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. The program puts pediatric patients in the driver’s seat of a shiny red car, so they can cruise to their treatment while maintaining a sense of independence, control and freedom. Victor Gloo, 3, of Baldwinsville, was one of the first patients to drive the car. His parents, Aaron and Veronica Gloo, stand back while nurse Sarah Holzhauer shows him how to work the car.
