Also, team leaders Kenadi Crawford '24, Kendal Crawford '24, Rebecca Eigner '25, Grace Morford '24, and Taylor Rosoff '25 have been accepted as candidates in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) 2022 Students of the Year campaign. Each student participating in the Washington DC scholarship and fundraising challenge has been nominated for their exceptional leadership, passion to find a cure for blood cancers and involvement in the community.
All participating teams collectively raised more than $3.6 million for LLS, setting a new national record! This tremendous total will help pave the way for new cancer research and treatments. Since 2015, Bullis has donated over $1.1 million to LLS.
Please join us in congratulating these young philanthropic visionaries and their team members on their remarkable success!
