We are grateful to members of the National Honor Society from Christ the King Catholic High School (Huntersville, NC) for their recent fundraising efforts benefiting Carolina HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute. Members will be recognized for their contribution by Carolinas HealthCare Foundation’s Young Ambassadors program.

Christ the King Catholic High School, established in 2011, recently affiliated a chapter of the National Honor Society.  As part of their goal for service, student-members designed a t-shirt remembering loved ones of their school community who have been affected by cancer.  Collecting 54 names to adorn the back of the shirt, the 9 participating student-members sold more than 100 t-shirts, far surpassing the goal set by the Chapter. The students raised more than $1,000, which will be donated to Levine Cancer Institute for research managing the early stages of cancer.

The new chapter recently initiated 11 more members, continues to sells t-shirts, and is looking forward to further fundraisers supporting Levine Cancer Institute.

Thank you to Kaitlyn Miller with the National Honor Society for sharing the news of our local students’ participation in the NHS and their dedication to impacting cancer care in the Carolinas.
