Welcome to Team The Good Fight's SOY Fundraising Page!

Feb 22, 2019

The Good Fight is honored to participate in the 2019 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We are proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of those battling blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

You might be wondering why we're called The Good Fight. Our candidate’s father fought AML, or Acute Myeloid Leukemia, for three and a half years. Throughout his battle with Leukemia, he always told his family “We’ll fight the good fight, and if we lose, we’ll go down swinging.” He ultimately passed away after three relapses, but nevertheless, this inspired our candidate, Clara Miller, to name her team “The Good Fight" in honor of him. 

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

We are proud to say that our team is made up of a group of dedicated students in the Athens area. They are Clara Miller, Danielle Norris, Hayden Wood, Kira Avolio, Chip Scott, Kasey Ehrenreich, Lizzie Walker, Rob Sullivan, and Ingrid Nilson.

All of us have been impacted by cancer in some way. That's why we've joined The Good Fight, and we hope you will too.

    While I never knew those who Clara lost at such a young age, the work she has done with this organization, in their memory, and the person she is becoming is quite impressive. I know that the young woman she has become would make them so very, very proud. I am confident that she is the type of person who will change the world and I base my confidence on the fact that she already has. Way to go, Clara! So happy and proud to know you!
