The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Students of the Year is an exciting leadership development and philanthropy program in which high school students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit LLS. Every dollar raised counts as one vote. The candidate who raises the most money at the end of the seven week competition earns the title Student of the Year.
For motivated high school students, this program insures they stand out among their peers when engaging with colleges and/or future employers. Through guidance and mentoring from experienced professionals at LLS, they will make a real impact in the fight against blood cancers.
To join the fight against cancer and improve the quality of life for our patients and their families. Leukemia is the number one cancer killer of children under the age of 20; therefore kids are helping kids battling these devastating cancers.

Senior Hannah Dowd from Wheat Ridge High School and sophomore Hannah Mosher from Lakewood High School participated in the 2017 Students of the Year campaign with the Rocky Mountain chapter. Each student assembled a team to raise as much as they could for blood cancer research over the course of 10 weeks. Together these students raised more than $50,000 for the mission of LLS.
Congratulations to both students for their incredible success!
In 2016, the Rocky Mountain Chapter had two student candidates participate in Students of the Year as honorary fundraisers.

These two candidates worked hard to raise funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society during the ten weeks and by the end of the campaign had raised a combined $50,000!
