Hello! Just wanted to give you a quick update on the Winning with Class MISSION to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation fight childhood cancer. As of now, we are approaching $10,000 raised….by just under 40 teams across the country! Recent highlights include appearances by the MISSION at the sports banquets of the University of Dayton and Fordham University where both schools made very generous contributions to the MISSION. Fordham’s day was made even more special as we were honored to have Bridget Smith as a special guest. Bridget is a cancer survivor and appeared with her family, all of whom are Hero Ambassadors of Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Over the last 8 years, the Smiths have held lemonade stands and raised nearly $200,000! Bridget and her mother have also appeared on the Today Show. It was incredible to meet Bridget and her amazingly strong family in person and hear their story first hand. This is simply what the MISSION is all about – student-athletes celebrating a successful year in sports while also helping Bridget and Alex continue the fight against childhood cancer.
Another highlight was the Change War! The school members of both the Presidents’ Athletic Conference and the North Coast Athletic Conference challenged each other to see which conference could collect more change during a one-week period. The NCAC edged out the win and the overall result was a very generous contribution by all members of both conferences to the MISSION.
Thank you to all – we’re just getting started! If you would like to join the MISSION or know anybody else who needs to be a part of it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep Winning with Class……
