Hearts of Gold

Students at Meadowbrook Elementary School raised awareness for pediatric cancer research by participating in the schoolwide Whip Pediatric Cancer Heart of Gold program.
According to its website, the program was established to put an end to pediatric cancer by spreading awareness and raising funds for pediatric cancer research.  
Beginning Oct. 19, children received a gold paper heart and were asked to return the heart filled with a colorful design and the recommended donation of $1.
More than $400 was raised over the course of two weeks and donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, and the hearts were arranged in the lobby to demonstrate Meadowbrook’s efforts in the fight against pediatric cancer.
