“President Franklin Roosevelt established the March of Dimes in 1938. March of Dimes has saved the lives of millions of babies since our founding. And we won’t stop until we reach the day when every baby is born healthy. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies’ lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, and low birthweight.”

As one of the world’s premier cancer centers, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The close collaboration between their physicians and scientists is one of their unique strengths, enabling them to provide patients with the best care available today as they work to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer in the future. Their education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain at Memorial Sloan-Kettering has an impact on cancer treatment and the biomedical research agenda around the world.

The melding of research with patient care is at the heart of everything they do. At the Sloan-Kettering Institute, state-of-the-art science research flourishes side-by-side with clinical investigation and treatment at Memorial Hospital, the nation’s oldest cancer hospital.

“The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease within the decade through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today. For The Michael J. Fox Foundation, there is one clear measure of success: delivering patients better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for Parkinson’s disease. We’ve developed a targeted approach to research funding that helps us identify and prioritize the patient-relevant science that will allow us to reach our goal. Since we began in 2000, the Foundation has funded over $149 million in Parkinson’s research, either directly or through partnerships.”

Muscoot Farm is an early-1900s interpretive farm that is open year-round and offers a full schedule of programs for families, as well as group tours, farmyard visits and hayrides by reservation.

More than seven miles of hiking trails allow visitors to explore some of Muscoot’s 777 acres through fields, woodlands and wetlands. Trail maps are available in the reception center. For the protection of our animals and our visitors, petting and feeding of the farm animals is not permitted and dogs are not allowed at Muscoot.

Muscoot Farm was originally a gentleman’s farm owned by the Hopkins family and used as their summer estate and dairy farm from 1880 to 1924. In 1924 the family moved to the farm year-round and continued the dairy business until 1967 when Westchester County acquired the property.

Today, Muscoot Farm has many of the original buildings, some of which were moved to accommodate the Muscoot Reservoir. Visitors can walk through the dairy barn, milk house, ice house, blacksmith shop and several other barns and buildings. Livestock and poultry are breeds typical of an early 20th century gentleman’s farm and many represent minor rare breeds. The Main House is used to exhibit monthly art shows by local artists.

In 2011 Muscoot Farm was awarded Heritage Advocate Award, sponsored by Heritage Preservation, a national non-profit organization, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
