Schools Against Cancer teaches elementary school students the importance of giving back to others, instilling in them important values like empathy and compassion.
When children fundraise for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, they fuel cancer research and support patients right here in Western New York. The best part is that you choose how to get involved.
Pick an activity and make it a marathon. Hosting a run-a-thon, jump-rope-a-thon or any other marathon event is a great way to engage students and keep them active while fundraising for a great cause. Parents can even use the Good Move app to track students’ activities, such as reading, playing sports or showing kindness to their peers.
Does your school have spirit? Take your spirit or themed week to the next level by fundraising for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Make it fun and add your own twist. You can even offer a “pie the teacher” incentive for the top fundraiser or an ice cream social for the top class!
Only 4% of federal funding for cancer research is designated for childhood cancers. That means donor support and community fundraising are crucial to bring this research to life. Let students know their efforts are saving the lives of kids just like them!
Proceeds from Schools Against Cancer benefit Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
