Barb Wozdin and Chief Kanim Middle School Principal Kirk Dunckel display Chief Kanim’s latest award from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s School and Youth Programs for Pennies for Patients. This year, Chief Kanim raised $6,655.24. This ranked the school as the fifth-highest money-raising school in a three-state region. Chief Kanim Middle School began raising money for the Pennies for Patients program in 2003, when one of its students served as the poster child for the organization. Since then, several students with Leukemia have attended school. Over the past six years, the school has raised $19,982. Chief Kanim will again be raising funds for the Pennies for Patients program in March.
