The American Cancer Society Schools vs. Cancer program brings education and community service to an elementary classroom in a fun and exciting way that also allows students to help save lives from cancer. Through Schools vs. Cancer program, students will learn about cancer, steps they can take to reduce their risk of developing the disease, and tips to stay healthy. Educational materials and resources will be provided that align with your school's existing curricula while also introducing the topic of cancer in a youth friendly way.
Fill out the Schools vs. Cancer Interest Form and a representative from the American Cancer Society will
reach out within the next 5-7 business days.
Schools that fundraise through Schools vs. Cancer have the opportunity to receive a financial grant based on their total dollars raised
“Schools vs. Cancer is personal to all of us here at Northwest Allen County Schools. It doesn’t matter if we are a student, parent, or a staff member, cancer has affected all of us in some way. This program gives us an opportunity to help in the fight and to give our kids great tips on staying healthy. We love Schools vs. Cancer!”
“I participate for my sister Anne Deardorff, a metastatic breast cancer survivor of 16 years. She is the "tribal elder" of our family. Her faith is deep and richly shared with others. Her love of family and friends is genuine. She inspires me to be the best version of me I can be.”
“I participate for my mother, who was a breast cancer survivor, and for all survivors to give them Hope for a Cure. I am amazed at the friendships and support for the ACS that I have encountered in several years.”
