When Sidney Kushner ‘13 was a sophomore at Brown, he met a young boy with cancer named Andy who loved watching baseball. What came next is a Social Innovation Fellowship and CCChampions, a nonprofit that connects kids with cancer to pro-athlete mentors. While Sidney worked to provide inspiring connections for young people, he was also inspired himself by the supportive social innovation network at Brown.
