As the year progresses, we will have multiple carwash and bake sale fundraisers. Occasionally we will be the ones baking the cookies for the fundraisers! It'll be a fun event for a good cause; spreading awareness for childhood cancer. Besides having fundraisers, we will be working with Kaiser Permanente. We will be spend time with patients suffering form cancer (mainly children) and will gain experience from it along the way. It's a great opportunity for those of you who are interested in the medical field!
