Bethesda Preschool students raised more than $5,000 for LLS

Early this morning more than 250 preschool students gathered at Bethesda Country Day School in Bethesda, Md., to be recognized by a representative from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for their efforts in raising more than $5,000 for the Pennies for Patients campaign.

One of more than 400 participating schools in the Washington D.C. area, Bethesda Country Day School placed in the top 20 for the amount of money raised and greatly surpassed their original goal of $2,500.

“Pennies for Patients” is a nationwide fundraiser that raises money to help cure leukemia and other blood-relation cancers. Students of all ages collect pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters throughout the program.
