Freshman Raises More Than $9,500 in Memory of Her Dad

Light the Night - Catie Kuralt

Catie Kuralt ’17 would like to thank the entire Cannon community for all of their support with the fundraising team We Are Family. A special thanks to the freshman class, who dove in and supported the cause as their freshman service project.

Catie formed the team in August, and was quickly joined and supported by more than sixty Cannon team members in an effort to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Catie’s dad passed away from leukemia in 1999, and she has a passion and dedication towards helping raise awareness and funds to support the community and those suffering from leukemia.

Thanks to the entire Cannon community, the We Are Family team raised more than $9,500 to donate towards research and patient care for those suffering from leukemia and blood related cancers. The team attended the annual Light the Night event on November 2, carrying lit balloons at dusk to support the cause. Thank you Cannon for coming together and going beyond!
