We are honored to announce that Dr. Karen Simmonds-Brady has agreed to be our 2022 Celebration of Champions Honoree!
The Celebration of Champions is an annual event hosted by Champions for Life, Inc. in Auburn, NY to honor and celebrate community members who have contributed in an extraordinary manner to the well-being of their neighbors, friends, families, and all who live in Cayuga County.
Dr. Simmonds-Brady is a fourth generation Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, born and raised in Auburn, New York. An outstanding athlete and scholar, Karen attended Penn State on a full scholarship, graduated from the University at Buffalo’s School of Dental Medicine with her DDS, and did her residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Montifore Hospital in New York City.
Karen is a founding member of the Auburn Pulsars, a youth running group established in 2015. This program introduces children to the joys of running while fostering proper nutritional habits, a healthy lifestyle and personal growth while instilling confidence during what are often challenging times. This mission was especially important during the pandemic as so many of Auburn’s children faced additional challenges as the result of the lockdown.
Additionally, Karen coaches Girls Track and Cross-County at Auburn High School, volunteers with Dr. Theresa Casper-Klock to offer pro-bono dental services to local veterans each Veterans Day, and has mentored dozens of student athletes.
We are so excited to be honoring Karen at this year’s event, and hope you will join us at Emerson Park on May 6. Tickets are available at the link below, or you can purchase a table or sponsorship by contacting John Alberici at 315-224-3330
