Pennies for Patients Campaign

Friends of the Rittman Academy,

The Rittman Academy is involving our students in the Pennies for Patients Campaign.  This is on behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Since 1993 students and educators have raised more than 370 million dollars in support of our mission to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families.

This campaign is to assist in finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s Disease, and Myeloma.  Leukemia are the cancer cells that are mainly in the bone marrow and blood while Lymphoma tend to be in the lymph nodes and other tissues.

The kids will be putting coins in a large container to contribute to the cause.  We feel it is important for the kids to understand and participate in a service project.

If you feel inclined, adults can donate on-line by going to:

At this site you could donate online a gift of any size on behalf of the Rittman Academy.
