Dear fellow Pleasanton residents,
I’m very excited to share with you that I am part of the 2017 Student of the Year campaign and
over the next seven weeks, I will be working to raise money and awareness for The Leukemia
& Lymphoma Society (LLS) and their mission to cure for blood cancers.
It’s an honor to be a part of such an outstanding group of fellow students, but an even larger
honor to be able to work for the patients, survivors and their families. I am fundraising in honor
of the Boy & Girl of the Year, James (17) & Nomi (13) – local blood cancer heroes. James was
diagnosed at age 11 with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After spending months in & out of the
hospital, he received his last treatment in May of 2016, and thanks in-part to LLS he is now a
healthy 17-year old.
LLS’s work is changing the lives of 1.2 million Americans living with a blood cancer, just like
James. To learn more about why this cause is so important to me, watch THIS VIDEO:
My personal goal is to raise $5000 between March 23rd and May 12th.
It’s a lofty goal, but I am willing to work hard to reach it. I cannot do it alone, I need your help.
There are a few ways you can support my fundraising efforts:
1) Donate via my personal fundraising page:
OR mail a check payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with my name in the
“Memo” section to:
ATTN: Molly Diedrich
101 Montgomery Street, Suite 750
San Francisco, CA 94104
2) Share my message & fundraising link with your contacts via email or social media
3) Donate a silent auction item that can be used for the Grand Finale Brunch auction
4) Help me secure a corporate sponsorship (Sponsorships start at $2500 and sponsors
receive marketing benefits)
Not only is this campaign a great way to support LLS and their life-saving work, but it’s a great
leadership opportunity for me. Students receive scholarships based on our fundraising and
awareness efforts. I am so excited to be able to make a difference in my community in this way.
Thank you for your generosity and support. Your donation truly makes a difference and with
your help, we’re one step closer to a cure for blood cancers.
I can’t wait to share the exciting updates of the next seven weeks with you. Stay tuned to see
what my team and I are able to accomplish!
