Ravenscroft 关键的难题 Team Sets New Record in Fundraising to Fight Cancer
Ravenscroft 关键的难题 Team Sets New Record in Fundraising to Fight Cancer

这是连续第四年了, Ravenscroft's student-led fundraising team for 关键的难题 has been recognized as the top fundraising school in the nation, 超过了30美元的目标,6美元以上,000 and once again winning the prestigious Pink Cleat Award.

关键的难题 is a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the National Football League to help more people catch cancer early and address the unequal burden of cancer in underserved communities. The initiative promotes pr事件ion and early detection of cancer and increases access to lifesaving cancer screenings. Since 2009, organizations fundraising for 关键的难题 have raised more than $22 million.

Ravenscroft team members for 2020-21 were Cole Stiefel '21, 加文·马森,21岁, 安德鲁·古尔德,21岁, 乔治亚·温斯顿22岁, Bea Holdstock, 22岁, 莱拉·帕克,22岁, 西蒙·鲍德温,22岁, 哈里森·普尔,23岁, 欧文·芬奇,23岁, 安珀·斯蒂菲尔,23岁, Alex Richmond’23, Alex Olander, 24岁, 埃琳娜·马森,24岁, 加兰·古尔德和诺亚·苏.

Coming into the school year while adapting to new COVID protocols, the group's leaders say they weren't sure what to expect.

“作为一个团队, we knew this year would be different because of COVID and we knew fundraising might be a challenge, but we also knew that the cause — cancer screening for underserved populations — was even more important during a pandemic,22岁的乔治娅·温斯顿解释道. "So, we set about our year anticipating that we might only accomplish half of what we would in a typical year."

“COVID改变了很多事情,最值得注意的是, [not having spectators at] football games cost us our primary means of raising awareness and donations,21岁的科尔·斯蒂菲尔(Cole Stiefel)说. "We had to change our fundraisers to fit the new world and still spread 关键的难题's message."

Building on the successful strategies of previous years, the group sold t恤,泽西迈克的潜水艇和粉色旗子 in honor and remembrance of loved ones fighting cancer. 但他们也尝试了一些新的东西——而且是及时的.

"We had a lot of success with a new fundraiser this year: our COVID Car Kits that included gloves, 口罩和洗手液,乔治娅解释道. "We offered them to the first 60 people who donated $20 or more. We were surprised as support started to come in, and many people generously donated more than $20."

对于科尔, leading the 关键的难题 efforts was a culminating experience in which he and his teammates had the opportunity to lean on the principles of 澳门线上赌城官方APP.

“这是我第一次担任重要的领导职务, and I learned immeasurable amounts about working with others,他说. "I had to communicate clearly to keep the team organized and work with individual members of the team to help us all strive to reach our goals. Many of the skills that I learned are 澳门线上赌城官方APP competencies, 喜欢交流, 协作性和适应性. 没有什么比亲身体验更好的了. My work with 关键的难题 taught me these vital skills and prepared me for my future."

哈里森·普尔,23岁, 谁担任今年的联合主席当选人, agreed that being involved in this endeavor provided valuable experience.

"I would say the thing I have learned most about being a part of the 关键的难题 team is willingness. To be part of the team requires time and effort,他说. “然而, 这是为了伟大的事业, and it makes you feel accomplished and helps to make the world a better place. My favorite part of the 关键的难题 experience from this year would be the meetings we had virtually that were filled with positivity and energy while also being productive."

"I was very proud of the entire team because we all adapted to the circumstances of COVID and worked with what we had — and ended up raising more money this year than we ever have before,乔治亚总结道。. “澳门线上赌城官方APP总共筹集了36624美元!"

A banner has been presented to the team and will be displayed at Billerman Court in recognition of this accomplishment. The American Cancer Society celebrated the Ravenscroft team in a 变焦电话 4月.
