CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- The Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital recently celebrated the re-opening of the hospital's special activity room, but none of it would have been possible if not for the efforts of a Chappaqua teen and his father.

Jackson Krase, 18, and his father, Scott climbed all 19,000 feet of Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro to help raise more than $55,000 for the hospital.

The money raised was used to incorporate entertainment technologies into the hospital's care process.

Also on hand for the ribbon cutting was National Hockey League Hall of Famer Pat LaFontaine.
