Students raise money to help beat cancer
TRURO — Students at Interstate 35 Community School raised an astonishing $4,046.63 recently to help fund blood-cancer research and provide help and hope to thousands of patients and their families through The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pennies for Patient’s program. The society would like to thank not only the school, but the community as well for all their support.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society gave the Iowa chapter a budgeted goal of 220 schools for the program. That is, it had a goal of recruiting only 220 out of the over 2,000 educational centers this year. It successfully met and surpassed the goal, recruiting 289 schools; the highest rate of participation for Iowa in the history of the Pennies for Patients program.
Out of those 289 schools, only five surpassed the $4,000 mark, becoming a Champion for Change school. If every school in Iowa accomplished what Interstate 35 School District accomplished, there is no doubt that we would be much closer to finding a cure for blood cancer. Interstate 35 is one of Iowa’s top leaders in the fight against cancer.
