London Elementary penny project raises awareness, funds for breast cancer
May 10, 2017

Last October, the students and staff at London Elementary School (LES) collected pennies as part of their Pink Out for breast cancer awareness. For the last few years, the campaign has been spearheaded by second grade teacher Khara Cunningham, who encouraged everyone to bring in coins and show their support in the fight against the disease.


Thousands of pennies were collected and this spring, a check for $1,100 was presented to the Mona Flax Breast Cancer Endowment Fund at Madison Health.  The money will be used to help area residents receive breast care services at no out-of-pocket cost.

"Many of us have had a loved one or friend who has courageously battled cancer," said Cunningham.  "Students and staff at LES are no exception.  We have had several past and present colleagues that have been diagnosed with breast cancer.  We choose to give to Madison Health’s Mona Flax Breast Cancer Endowment Fund because the donations remain in our community and directly impact our own loved ones."
