Student Visionaries of the Year Utah

Olivia, Brylee, and Makinzee's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 16, 2023


Our Why Statement: Blood cancer is severely underfunded in the United States. Our purpose is to raise money for those in need with an intent to save the four percent of underfunded pediatric patients.


We are the Rays of Hope: We represent hope for patients affected by cancer so we strive to make an impact starting with our community. 

Student Visionaries of the Year is a seven-week leadership development program that runs from January 26th 2023 to March 18th 2023 to raise money and help support the LLS mission to Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.  
We have created a team of committed clubs, medical professionals, friends, and family to partner with us on this journey. Together, we 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, advance initiatives like enacting policies that address the serious burdens of these diseases. Through their Office of Public Policy and network of over 35,000 volunteers nationwide, LLS advocates in Washington for laws and policies that accelerate the development of new treatments for cancer and break down the barriers to care that patients often encounter, including advancing oral parity laws, ending surprise medical bills, and limiting patients’ out-of-pocket  drug costs. 
Every single member of our team has had a relative impacted by cancer. We are dedicated to make an impact for cancer patients, cancer survivors, and the cancer community. Our 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. We know that with your help, we can reach our goal and make a direct impact in the fight against blood cancers.
