Schools Against Cancer.

Every one of us has the power to make a difference!

Schools Against Cancer is a Team Roswell program that allows students, from elementary school through college, to get involved in the mission to end cancer. If you have a fundraising idea, fill out the Schools Against Cancer Fundraising Form and one of the coordinators will reach out to you with the next steps!

I have always loved the idea that the kids can be a part of something, that they can go out and advocate for it. It shows that they have ownership of what they’re doing.

As a cancer patient, fundraising events make you realize that you're not going through this alone. Besides the support of family and friends, the community out there always steps up.

Everyone’s had their life impacted by cancer, so it just takes the right group of people having the vision to see how we can use gaming to make a difference.

Be a champion for cancer cures!

Youth fundraising offers incredible benefits to students of all ages. Getting involved with Team Roswell and Schools Against Cancer can mold leadership skills, build confidence and instill important values like empathy and compassion.

It’s a cause that hits home for nearly everyone, regardless of age. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the state and in the nation. The efforts of the young people in your school will fuel lifesaving treatments and innovative cancer research, benefiting patients right here in Western New York at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
