SHS Teens Raising Funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma Research

AngelinaClarkAngelina ClarkSHS Seniors Angelina Clark and Victoria (Tori) Von Redden are raising funds for The Leukemia and Lymphoma (LLS) 2021 Students of the Year campaign. The seven-week challenge culminates with the Grand Finale Celebration on March 11th. The funds raised benefit the LLS mission: to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

The money that is raised funds research and treatment for both blood and other cancers.

Since the campaign’s inception in 2014, the Students of the Year program has funded blood cancer research, patient aid, and community outreach programs. Last year alone, more than 5,000 high school students participated throughout the country.

Angelina said, “As someone who has lost relatives to blood cancer, I understand the importance of blood cancer research. Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer, so every contribution to LLS helps.” Angelina and Tori are supported by SHS LLS club members Grace Cheng, Isabelle Goldban, Alison Jiang, Samantha (Sam) Kofman, and Maria Salem. As Scarsdale Raiders, they have chosen to name their campaign, “Ders for a Cure.” The campaign ends March 11, 2021. ToriVonReddenTori Von Redden
