Western & Central New York

Welcome to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Student Series. Here you can find ways for your school to participate in fundraising programs that support our life-saving blood cancer research.


Student Series is a series of programs for schools and students at all grade levels to help support the LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Pennies for Patients is a three-week program for Elementary and Middle Schools where students collect change and raise funds online while learning about service and philanthropy.

Collect For Cures is a program for high school students to demonstrate leadership, creativity and teamwork to make an impact and raise money for blood cancer research.

Students of the Year is a seven-week long fundraising initiative in which high school students participate in a fundraising competition while learning about volunteerism, philanthropy, community outreach and leadership.
