Students of the Year Cincinnati
Jordan Sovik | Team CUREage's Campaign Team
Welcome to my fundraising page!!
My great-grandpa and me - Summer 2002
My great-grandma - Helen C. Sovik
I am honored to be campaigning with two of my classmates, Ben Westley and Sam Greenburg, for the 2020 Students of the Year program. The Students of the Year program is seven-week campaign period in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Every team has the same goal - to find a cure for blood cancers. My why, however, is a little different than most.
When I originally signed on to participate in the campagin, I had a personal connection to blood-related cancer; my great-grandfather passed away from Leukemia 18 months after I was born and my great-grandmother passed away from Leukemia before I was born - my parents remember more than I do in regards to these events (most one one year olds don't remember much!) However, about three weeks after starting my work, in August of 2019, one of my mentors lost her aunt who died only three weeks after having been diagnosed with Leukemia. Her name was Tina Eubanks, and she was 53. She left behind a husband, two daughters, and a family who are all deeply saddened by her loss. It is in Tina and my great-grandparent's honor that I continue my work on this campagin.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. I thank you in advance for joining me to continue Tina and my great-grandparents legacy.
Please visit my website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
