LYS Nation, you outdid yourself!  Your challenge was to visit classrooms to beat cancer, and you really stepped up.  In March, individually you visited a total of 16,469 classrooms (exceeding last year’s total by 4,504), which equates to a donation of $823.45

Then five LYSers met the 200 PowerWalks Challenge, which adds another $50.00 to the donation.

As for campuses, the following 16 schools made the March Cancer Fightin’ PowerWalks Hero list.  

Elementary Schools Middle Schools High Schools
Southside PS (CISD) – 528 Cunningham MS (GPISD) – 899 North Shore SHS (GPISD) – 1,274

Then North Shore Senior High School (Galena Park ISD) was the Ultimate PowerWalks Cancer Fightin’ Hero School in March, adding another $100.00 to the donation.
