During the month of October, the students and staff at London Elementary School (LES) collected donations for their annual breast cancer awareness campaign. The campaign, called “Dollars for Daniels,” honors the memory of Principal Carol Daniels who passed away in 2017.

“Many people have had a loved one or a close friend courageously fight this disease, or they may have even done so themselves,” said Khara Cunningham, second grade teacher at LES. “We lost a special person, Mrs. Daniels, to breast cancer and we are compelled to continue to give back to the community in her memory.”

Donations were collected and counted, and a check for $3,300 was presented to the Mona Flax Breast Cancer Endowment Fund at Madison Health.

“All of us at Madison Health are humbled by the generosity of the students and staff at London Elementary School,” said Ginger Kronk, executive director of the Madison Health Foundation. “These funds will go toward the Mona Flax Breast Cancer Endowment Fund, which provides assistance for breast cancer patients.”
