We’re Feeling LUCKy

staff

Legacy United through Caring and Kindness, a.k.a. LUCK week (though we think it should be LUtCaK) starts next week. In an amazing display of, you guessed it, caring and kindness, the Legacy students and faculty hope to raise $10,000 to help with Olivia Nolley’s medical bills. We hope everyone gets involved in LUCK week, because even the smallest donations add up.

Diagnosed with advanced brain cancer, Nolley’s treatment will cost thousands of dollars. Hoping to ease the financial burden, organizations throughout the school have started several individual fundraisers; including choir’s open mic night, an open stop-action film by our broadcast department, a ping-pong tournament sponsored by the tennis team and many more. They have made it easy for anyone to donate to a great cause while having fun (and maybe some good-humored embarrassment) at the same time. Legacy has once again shown its ability to selflessly reach out beyond the school walls and help the community.

The concept of LUCK week began with the success of HOG week at Timberview, and FROG week at Summit. Both have succeeded in similar charity works, and have received national recognition. Student Council has partnered with extra curricular groups within the school and gained support from local businesses in an effort to get as many contributions as possible. We applaud the efforts of the StuCo students working under Mrs. Schimming in bringing so many separate groups together for a single cause.

After visiting Olivia and her family, they found that in addition to her own condition, Olivia’s father died from a seizure when she was nine, and her mother has an undiagnosed mass under her breast. The Nolley family has suffered greatly, and Legacy students should do as much as they can to help them out.

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.
