Fundraising for TeamConnor
The giving window will be Thursday September 21st - Monday October 1st, see below how to donate to Team Connor:
Good afternoon Leadership Prep staff and teachers,
We are thrilled to welcome back your amazing school, Leadership Prep for the 2023 campaign for Coins for Kids with Cancer program to benefit TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation. We are so honored to have such a deep relationship with such a wonderful school, students, staff, and families who have generously participated with this important program to fund pediatric cancer research. September is an important month for us as it is childhood cancer awareness month and so it is timely that your amazing school is participating in this awesome fundraising event.
The fundraising goal for your grade is $500 - $1,000. This is a goal and if you all surpass it, that is AMAZING! Your team name is Help Us Make a Big Change 2023. All giving is online this year on one platform. We ensure this seamless, simple, turnkey, donor friendly approach for the staff, teachers, students and families of Leadership Prep.
Donation for the 2023 campaign is NOW OPEN! Please click this LINK to make your online donation today for childhood cancer. In the IN HONOR box please list LPS and the grade level. If you have multiple students please list LPS and the grade levels. For example, LPS grade 7 and grade 3 or LPS - 11th and 2nd.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our staff, teachers, students and families to give in a BIG way for childhood cancer. September is childhood cancer and we are honored to play a meaningful role in the impact that TeamConnor has within this space in our community with our local children's hospitals, Children's and Cook Children's.
We look forward to a successful campaign as we fund pediatric cancer research. To date, the TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation has funded almost $6M for pediatric cancer research. We know that through research a cure will come and it is our hope that no child or family has to go through the childhood cancer journey.
Please let us know if you have any questions and or need any additional information. We are here for you! Help us beat childhood cancer!
Pink/Green Out Day Thursday September 28
Then to show our support for Team Conner and Cancer Awareness, on Thursday September 28th, we have a Pink and/or Green Out day. (Pink is a traditional color for breast cancer support and green is the color for TeamConnor). Students will get to wear as much pink and/or green as possible that day to school. They can wear socks, shoes, pants, shirts, glasses, wigs, etc. The only rule for elementary is no hair coloring or face paint (this rule applies to any special dress day; we save those privileges for the older kids so they have something to look forward to.)
