This year, Bullis had an incredible team participate in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Students of the Year campaign, a seven-week fundraising challenge benefitting LLS’s mission of curing blood cancers.
Team Fight 4 a Cure led by sophomores Sophia Benaim (top center) and Lyndsey Smith (bottom center) with support of their dedicated team members (L-R); Sydney Anzelone '23, Sarah Ashkin '23, Elle Bischoff '23, Lexi Blank '23, Alex Bonham '23, Danny Cantor '23, Kiana Dian '23, lbenka Espinoza '22, Grant Ettinger '23, Rhyan Goozh '23, Ellie Herr '23, Griffin Hoch '23, Olivia Kuehl '23, Hanna Levy '23, Dillon Malkani '23, Victoria Marshall '23, Emily Rubenstein '23, Logan Steren '23, Sasha Ugel '23.
We are pleased to share with you that this incredible team raised over $146,000 for the LLS mission! In addition, this team, along with 42 other teams across the National Capital Area, collectively raised over $3.3 Million, breaking records for the local campaign and on a national level. This amazing contribution to the LLS mission earned the team two Top Fundraiser Awards. This tremendous total will help pave the way for new cancer research and treatments. It is safe to say that this year has set the bar very high for future students and set an example for this campaign on a national level.
Congratulations to the Bullis Team Fight 4 a Cure for your philanthropic efforts to help fight cancer!
