WoodCreek Elementary Student Council Raises Funds for Cancer Research

WoodCreek Elementary fifth-grade student council members recently raised over $1,800 for cancer patients through the Pennies for Patients program. Funds raised will go towards continued research and treatment for leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood and soft tissue cancers. The student council is continually inspired by fellow Katy area elementary student
Quonziah Ford (also known as Ziah the Victorious), who is battling rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer.


Since 1994, more than 10 million middle school and high school students nationwide have raised millions of dollars in pennies and other spare for the Pennies for Patients program. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS leads the way in blood cancer research and has been instrumental in advancing research on solid tumors and autoimmune diseases. Please mention you found this in www.KatyMagazine.com.
