The students of Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Academy in Far Rockaway are raising awareness for leukemia.

Dressing in all orange, the color of leukemia awareness, the students raised over two-thousand dollars for the Leukemia Society.

It’s an organization they decided to support because they were inspired by a former student, Rocco Pisani, who bravely fought and survived leukemia throughout the pandemic.
