"We're grateful for our partnership with PSE&G, and now the New York Giants. By teaming up, these organizations have shown their tremendous commitment to kids and families in our communities."

The game also marks the organization's Alumni Day, a homecoming for former players. New York Giants Alumni visited patients at the hospital's New Brunswick facility on September 8 in anticipation of the event. Alumni signed autographs, toured the hospital, and met children living at the hospital during their intensive rehabilitation therapy.

Patients from the hospital will participate in Sunday's match up as well.
