Plymouth Canton High School promoting awareness

We are happy to share that last month's BLAST fundraiser raised $2100 for The Rainbow Connection and $3020 for research at U of M/Mott's Hospital.  We were a small but dedicated team and thankful to all those who joined us in our efforts.

Today was a special day as I shared our story about Lisa's fight and the need for awareness and funds with 300+ STEM academy students at the high school today.  I was joined in this effort by a dynamic young cancer warrior Christine Wall.  She stood in front of all her peers and shared her personal story to inspire all who listened and who could, with small actions, help make a big difference.

There should be an article in the newspaper tomorrow and on the following was posted on the high school website:
The STEM Academy will be fundraising for Childhood Cancer Research starting October 10 until October 22.  This hits close to home because of students within the Academy who have battled/battling cancer, as well as, families within the district who have lost loved ones. specifically the McMasters'  It is up to the STEM students to raise $15,000 within this time frame. I know they can do it! As teachers, parents, family members and community members...WE CAN HELP THESE STUDENTS REACH THEIR GOAL.

We have also had support from the student council and NHS members as they embrace opportunities to raise awareness. 

I am hopeful that the PCCS community can take our efforts and grow them into a legacy that raises awareness and funds for Childhood Cancer so research can abound and families and children will have treatments that were designed for children and allow them to live longer and BLAST cancer.
