This Friday, April 29, is Caps for the Cure Day in all Wyoming City Schools! Proceeds benefit The Cure Starts Now Foundation and pediatric brain cancer research.
The Cure Starts Now was founded by a Wyoming family after their daughter Elena, a student at Vermont School, lost her battle with DIPG, a hard to treat form of brain cancer. In the years since, the non-profit has gone on to fund research grants around the globe totaling more than $18 million.
This Friday on Caps for the Cure Day, students can wear a crazy hat or crazy socks for the day. In exchange, students and families are asked to donate $1 to The Cure Starts Now Foundation. Students can bring money to school on Friday or students and families can donate electronically now using the QR code on the newsletter linked here and below.
Wyoming City Schools' Caps for the Cure Day is a collaborative effort of the Wyoming High School Student Council, Wyoming Middle School Student Council, the staff of Wyoming City Schools, and The Cure Starts Now.
