Pennies For PatientsOur school is joining the Hero Squad by participating in the Pennies for Patients fundraiser, sponsored by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) from March 26 – April 13, 2018. Pennies is a 3-week service-learning program that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting blood cancers - like leukemia – one of the leading fatal cancers of children ages 1 – 20. The 5-year survival rate for children under the age of 20 with the most common form of leukemia (ALL) went from 3% in the 1960s to almost 95% today. Every day we are getting closer to finding cures for all blood cancers!
Our goal is to raise $2,700 and WE NEED YOR HELP! We are asking that everyone (students, faculty, parents, alumni, etc.) at Metcalf Elementary School join in this effort of raising awareness and giving funds to benefit the mission of LLS.
