Excerpt from a Letter
by Lizzie Archer, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

In a year when so many were knocked down - this generation of leaders stood up in the fight against cancer. I was continually impressed with the team as well as the incredible support they received from their school and peers.

This group is filled with bright, insightful, imaginative, compassionate, and dedicated students who truly understand the spirit of "giving back" and helping others. Lizzie Archer, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

I have no doubt that these wonderful qualities are reinforced by the amazing teachers and administration at Bullis School every day. I have every confidence that these students have a bright future ahead of them. I know you will join me in congratulating these young philanthropists and their team members on their remarkable success!

Congratulations to the Bullis Team Fight 4 a Cure for your philanthropic efforts to help fight cancer!
