Burlington students make an impact on those battling cancer


Students at Burlington Elementary are making a big impact on those who are battling cancer.

For the whole month of February, the pre-school through eighth-grade classes collected funds to donate to pennies for patients. 

In total, the school was able to raise close to $13,000. 

Those funds will directly benefit patients in the tri-state area. 

Burlington Elementary has been participating in the fundraising event for the last 15 years. 

“You’re not just donating a dollar, you’re giving somebody like some hope and it’s just nice,” said 8th grader Katelynn Berg.

“Every year I think everybody really looks forward to it –and it’s a lot of fun. Especially since we’re raising money for such a great cause,” said 8th grader Laney Wahus.

All 15 years combined, the school has raised more than $100,000 for pennies for patients.
