Legee Elementary raises $10,000 for cancer foundation

HUNTLEY – Students from Legee Elementary recently raised more than $10,000 for the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation during the school’s first-ever “Cut Out Cancer” event.

Students reached certain fundraising goals to have people within the District 158 community shave their heads, as a way to support cancer patients who have underwent chemotherapy.

Legee art teacher Cindy Rick organized the cancer event after seeing children in Huntley who had undergone cancer treatment.

By raising $10,132 for the foundation, students watched Legee Principal Scott Iddings, staff members, area police and firefighters have their heads shaved.
