Team Go the Distance

Feb 20, 2023

I am so excited to share that I have been nominated for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year campaign! As a candidate, I have formed a multi-generational team of passionate advocates who believe in the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. ​​​​​​​

I have personally seen the impacts of illnesses, from autoimmune diseases to various types of cancer. I’ve seen how it can affect the individual, their family, and even their community. When this opportunity arose to make a difference, I lept at it. No matter how large or small of an impact I create, I will know that I took the opportunity, tried my best, and (hopefully) succeeded in helping at least one person. My campaign will provide support to the critical work of LLS in hopes that one day no one will have to grow up without the ones they love. And that’s why my team, Team Go the Distance, is hoping to make a change. 

My amazing team has set a fundraising goal of $85,000, and have chosen advocacy as the LLS mission pillar to represent throughout our campaign. Money raised helps LLS, the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers, from enacting policies addressing these diseases to funding research. And you can play a vital role in helping us achieve this goal!

I thank you in advance for your generosity, and please remember that every bit counts. 

I really appreciate your support. If you would like to do more, feel free to help us through: 

  • Joining the team! If this cause really resonates with you, we would love to have you join us and spread the word to your friends and family.  

  • Sponsoring the campaign! Your company could receive various partnership recognitions and benefits – reach out to me for more information :)

  • Donating items or experiences for auction! In the Grand Finale Gala, we will be setting up auctionable products from VIP game tickets to meet-and-greets with celebrities. 

Thank you so much for your time and support for my campaign. I am always open for questions, or if you just want to learn more about the program and cause.
