In Frisco, 12-year-old cancer survivor and current 7th grader at Leadership Prep School, Ashley Piltz was joined by classmates Vaishnavi Nagalla, Ritu Lokaiah, and Carter Everidge to present a check for more than $6,000 to TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation. Pictured with the students left to right are: Kathryn Copple, executive director at TeamConnor; Board President Carolyn Alvey, and TeamConnor Founder, Joy Cruse.
The students worked tirelessly in September, National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, to raise money to help fund more research for kids battling cancer.
Leadership Prep participated in the Coins For Kids with Cancer® campaign, a national fundraising program that supports research across the country at leading hospitals for various childhood cancers through TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation. Coins for Kids with Cancer teaches children how the simple act of collecting spare change can have a huge impact in the battle against childhood cancer.
