Beckendorff Jr. High’s Teen Leadership classes held its annual ‘Ready to Roll’ campaign raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through their ‘Pennies for Patients’ program. Students and faculty donate spare change to help treat patients with blood cancers. BDJH raised $25,000 bringing the schools total in the past seven yearly campaigns to $106,000.
Paige Whitten Seimers, Teen Leadership teacher said, “I’m so proud to be a part of a campaign, Ready to Roll Day, at my school, Beckendorff JH, that raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I’m blessed to work in a generous community of teachers, students, families that look for ways to give back.”
