Making a Positive Impact, One City at a Time

“It’s been a great week,” says Chuck Jarrett, member of a sponsor family for Up with People for the week. “The cast has done some fantastic things at local hospitals and some other facilities.”

During the visit, a group of cast members performed an acoustic set of some of the songs from their show at the Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. “It was filmed and broadcasted to the rooms of patients at the hospital and some of the staff were also there watching us,” says Brekken Baker of Wyoming, USA. “We also did a horticulture activity with the patients on their rooftop.”

Additionally, the cast visited Step Stone Academy where they made personal flags with the kids.

“We also went to The Gathering Place, which is where they empower and support those with cancer,” says Jennifer Marsh of Michigan, USA. “We were able to help out and do some cleaning of the facility so that they are able to do what they do every single day.”

Cast B 2017 put on two shows in Chagrin Valley to benefit the Orange Area Service Committee, a non-profit organization that helps families in need. “We are thrilled with what Up with People has done,” says Chuck.
