Students at Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School are prepping for the first ever Live Like Abby Walk-a-thon taking place at OLHMS on Friday, May 10, 2019. For a $20 donation, students can participate in the event and will receive a Go Gray in May t-shirt from the Live Like Abby foundation. All donations will go toward the dream team at Lurie Children’s Hospital as they work to find a cure for Pediatric Cancers.
“OLHMS is honored to be honoring the memory of Abby Wujcik, who would have been an 8th Grade Mustang this year. Our school community has the power to make real change with the money collected that will be put toward brain cancer research and advancements so that no young life is taken as Abby’s was. Abby earned beads for enduring the hardships of cancer – it was 17 feet long. Our Mustangs will earn their beads for the good they do as well as the money they raise. If she could fight cancer, we can do this,” said Kathy Ogean.
