2018 Pennies for Patients campaign!
Pennies for Patients HAS STARTED!!!!!
The Brown Student Leaders (Student Council) are very excited to lead their thirteenth Pennies for Patients campaign! Over the last twelve years, Brown has raised OVER $170,000 for cancer research through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! On the first day of the campaign last year the students brought in over $5,000 for LLS! The campaign starts Tuesday, February 27 with our first money turn in day! Our kick-off assembly will be Tuesday, February 27 and continues through Friday, March 16 with our celebration assembly. Thank you for helping us work towards finding a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma!
