The Power of the Penny
Who knew pennies could be so powerful? They don’t seem to be worth much, especially during this age of e-commerce and digital transactions. So, what are they really good for? Even the smallest amount of coins can add up to big change for childhood cancer. Why not put those coins to work for a cure?
Students, teachers, community leaders, and passionate employees can be a force for good while fundraising for childhood cancer research.
If you’re a student leader, make sure to have an adult co-register with you. You will receive a G9 Event Kit with lots of tools and tips to get started.

HEAR FROM AN ORGANIZER
“It’s wonderful to see when kids put their efforts together, what they can accomplish. Their great effort comes from putting the students at the center and helping them understand why they do the service they do. Supporting G9 and childhood cancer research is a cause that everyone can get behind.”
––Dr. Don Galster, Head of School
“We support G9 to honor all those affected by childhood cancer, including some of our classmates. By spreading the word and raising funds for research, we hope to encourage our local community to do the same so every child can win the fight against cancer. Even the smallest actions have a big impact.”
––Emily & Della, Co-Presidents, National Honor Society
“Gold in September is a cause that many students can relate to in different ways. Sadly, many of our families have personal experiences with cancer and are looking for a way to support cancer research. Our students are learning that through their school community, they can make a difference.”
––Susan Mikulecky, Retired Elementary Educator
