Audubon High School 'Leader' to Raise Funds for LLSLast Edited:
Jack Sarciano, an Audubon High School sophomore, will be trying to raise the most funds for research to combat blood cancer for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Sarciano can also be named national Student of the Year.
“I am proud and honored to have been chosen to participate in this leadership program and to make a significant and specific difference in the lives of those affected by cancer,” said Sarciano.
This is the fourth year that LLS has run the program.
These students are bringing fresh and exciting ideas, and are creating greater awareness to this important cause.
The mission of LLS is to find cures and ensure access to treatment for individuals with blood cancer. Winning students can choose to earmark 100 percent of funds they raised to an LLS research project.
“Participating students are chosen because they demonstrate qualities of leadership, volunteerism, philanthropy?and community involvement,” said Ellen Rubesin, executive director of LLS Eastern Pennsylvania. “These students are bringing fresh and exciting ideas, and are creating greater awareness to this important cause.”
The team that raises the most money nationwide will earn a $2,500 scholarship to the college or university of their choice. While one student will receive a Mission Award based on their campaign’s commitment to the mission of LLS. Students who meet the minimum fundraising goal will also receive awards for recognition.
Sarciano will be supported by the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter.
Sarciano campaign kicks off on January 15, 2018, and runs through March 3, 2018.
