Cudas For A Cure Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Mar 12, 2024

We are Payton Atkinson and Peyton Elkind and together we are co-candidates for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign. As Juniors at New Smyrna Beach High School, we are leading team Cudas for A Cure focused on patient advocacy and raising as much as possible to help find a cure for blood cancer. Student Visionaries of the Year is a groundbreaking philanthropic leadership development program for high school students. Every year, courageous young leaders embark on an exciting 7-week fundraising competition with a goal to create a world without blood cancers, striving to earn the Student Visionary of the Year title. Our team goal is $20,000 and we need YOUR help! 

Donations in any amount will go towards:

  • Funding cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Providing free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizing thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit our website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!

- Payton and Peyton
