Guest Author: Max Brames, ’23, 2021 Vice President of the Cross Out Cancer [Student] Board
Thank YOU Cross Out Cancer CCC Students, Friends, and Families! Since 2015, Cross Out Cancer has raised over $460,000. CCC, Jesuit, Academy of the Holy Names, and Berkeley Prep were the main high schools represented at the event this year. To learn more about this student-led nonprofit, visit www.crossoutcancer.org.
It was a beautiful race on Saturday, Nov. 20, and I appreciate everyone that donated, participated, and volunteered. All high schools raised a combined total of $62,894.40 toward John Hopkins All Children Hospital.
We had 115 runners sign up from CCC (out of 347 total), and 150+ people from Clearwater Central Catholic joined in the community gathering Saturday morning.
Here are a few highlights about CCC’s successful participation in this event:
