LCO School Pennies for a Cure fundraiser extended to March 15

The Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School announced today that it will extend its "Pennies for a Cure" fundraiser until March 15 due to the number of school days that were cancelled in February because of weather.


The LCO School is participating in the 2019 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Pennies for a Cure" fundraiser. 100% of the money raised will go toward helping cancer patients beat their disease by raising funds needed to support blood cancer research. By collecting donations, LLS is able to find effective cancer therapies that, over the last 50 years, have increased the childhood leukemia survival rate from 3% to 90%. LLS also provides financial support to families affected by blood cancer to help combat the high cost of cancer care.


Please consider donating to your child, relative, or neighbor as they are collecting donations throughout the month of February. Top fundraising classes will also be working toward cash awards for their efforts.


This is a chance for YOU to make a BIG DIFFERENCE in the lives of those with blood cancer.
