Happy Kickoff everyone!
Today marks the start of the seven-week campaign, and I'm so excited to start fundraising after all the preparation myself and my team have done! Thank you for your support and have a great day!
It's officially the week of kickoff, and everyone's been working so hard to get everything ready! I'm so excited to kick this fundraiser off and to share my story with all of you. I've recieved a lot of support from my family, my wonderful team, and my awesome campaign manager Morgan. Thank you to everyone who's helped me, and I'm so excited to see the outcome of our work!
Hello! My name is Katie Rizzuto, I'm a junior at Carmel High School.
I'm running in honor of my grandma, who passed away from cancer when I was three. She recieved her diagnosis almost 15 years prior to this, but because of research that was experimental at this time she was able to meet me and my brother. I want to honor her, and give my family a space to honor her as well. Her story is why I'm running in support of the research pillar of LLS. I want to contribute to the development of new treatments for cancer, to give another family the opportunity she had.
This is my second year fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and I'm honored and excited to be able to continue my work from last year. Thank you all for your support in the fight to end cancer!
