STUDENTS OF THE YEAR CAMPAIGN
The Students of the Year campaign is a 7-week fundraising campaign, from the 15th of January to the 7th of March (2020), in which students all over the country will be working to raise money and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society(LLS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, whose mission is to find a cure for blood cancers. It is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. World-famous researchers like Brian Druker have the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to thank for the funding of Gleevec, a revolutionary leukemia drug that holds the record for the fastest approved drug by the FDA.
