Goodroot is a community of companies with a shared mission to reinvent healthcare one system at a time. It’s a bold commitment, and we’re already hard at work— developing businesses that improve the current state of healthcare delivery, and reform or replace the most critical parts of the system that are no longer working. When we created our foundation, ScholarScripts, followed by our Spooktacular fundraising event, the vision for was simple - to create a healthy environment where children facing serious and chronic illness, along with their families, can benefit from Halloween Spirit of their community.
The 3rd Annual ScholarScripts Spooktacular Halloween Costume contest is a simple, fun way that the community can get involved and make a difference in a serious or chronically ill child’s life. ScholarScripts, Goodroot’s philanthropic arm, strives to raise the much-needed funds for Team IMPACT, a non-for-profit organization that tackles the emotional trauma and social isolation experienced by children facing serious and chronic illnesses by matching them with a college athletic team.
The excitement for ScholarScript’s digital photo campaign has expanded nation-wide, but two years running, a very special northeast-based child, Xavier, has taken home the win. Last year, in the last seconds the photo contest, the AIC hockey team stepped up, submitting hundreds of votes to help their honorary Team IMPACT teammate take home the coveted prize.
Xavier, was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia just shy of his third birthday. Today, we can say that Xavier has been in remission for the last five years. Xavier’s costume, an AIC Yellow Jackets Team IMPACT Halloween, was voted best costume overall. As a result, Xavier received the grand prize of a $1,500 at a “big check” presentation. Xavier was joined by members of the AIC Yellow Jackets ice hockey team to receive his prize. The Goodroot team was so inspired by the AIC Yellow Jackets Hockey Team and their devotion to Team IMPACT that it was evident that ScholarScripts wanted to do more! That is why, this year, ScholarScripts is proud to announce… that 100% of every dollar raised from the 2021 Spooktacular Halloween Contest will go directly towards Team IMPACT!
