As an all-star player, Julia will participate in the Saturday, March 31 game at the Hub Arena on the campus of North Hagerstown High School.

Three Holy Cross Teams Participating in LLS Student of the Year Campaign

Girls from The Academy of the Holy Cross have participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Student of the Year Campaign since the program began in 2014. The Students of the Year program is a seven-week campaign in which teams of high school students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit LLS. The candidates/teams who raise the most money at the end of the competition on Saturday, March 3, are named Student(s) of the Year. Funds raised from Students of the Year help find cures and ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients.

This year there are three teams from Holy Cross who are already into their campaign fundraising. During a special assembly on Thursday, February 8, the teams introduced themselves and shared a few of their upcoming fundraising plans. Alli Kelly and Andrea O'Brien from the National Capital Area LLS commended Holy Cross for its commitment to the program and congratulated this year's teams for their efforts.

The combined total that Holy Cross teams have raised during the four years participating in the LLS Student of the Year campaign is $156,668.

As the campaign continues for the next several weeks, the teams will be hosting fundraising events. A Tag Day on Friday, February 16 will support the campaign efforts.
