Angeleeka David '20 and Athena Rupp '20, have taken on the task of building a team and fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS): Students of the Year Believe the Cure Campaign.

The Students of the Year campaign is a seven-week philanthropic leadership development program where selected high school students from across the nation are able to participate in a fundraising competition that benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
