About the Corporate Leadership Council

The Corporate Leadership Council is a group of dedicated individuals, well-connected in their communities and industries, with a passion for supporting the mission of the Sunrise Association to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings worldwide. Sunrise accomplishes this through the creation and oversight of welcoming, inclusive summer day camps, year-round programs and in-hospital recreational activities, all offered free of charge.  Sunrise changes months of loneliness and isolation into summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. We can’t do any of this without the involvement of community leaders.

Members of the Corporate Leadership Council are distinguished by their dedication, extensive connections in their communities and industries, and a shared passion for supporting the Sunrise Association. The council focuses on expanding the impact of the SunriseWALKS program through the cultivation of corporate partnerships, sponsorships, and the formation of walk teams. By doing so, they aim to elevate the reach and effectiveness of the organization, ensuring that more children and their families can experience the positive impact of Sunrise's programs.
The Corporate Leadership Council serves as a dynamic and influential network of leaders committed to enhancing the lives of children with cancer and their siblings, championing the cause through strategic partnerships and collaborative efforts.  Interested in learning more and joining this extraordinary network of corporate leaders contact National Director, Suzanne Beck
