Pennies for Patients Kick-off
This week Waggoner Road Middle School will be kicking off its Pennies for Patients Campaign hosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Although it is called “pennies for patients” you can donate more than just pennies if you wish. We also accept checks and through an online funding page which will be launched by February 1st.
Each classroom will have a donation box. The classroom with the highest donations will participate in a dodge ball tournament against the staff at Waggoner Road Middle School at the end of February.
By collecting donations, students will help people touched by blood cancers. In the 1960s the survival rate for the most common form of childhood leukemia was 3%. Today it’s approximately 90% thanks to many research advanced funded by LLS.
Thank you in advance for helping us create a world without blood cancers!
