SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
Students of the Washoe County School District have stepped up in order to help children with cancer and their families in Northern Nevada. These students have raised money and awareness in response to a district wide competition, in which Incline Elementary School was declared the winner after raising the most money for the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF).
The Northern Nevada Parent Teachers Association put out the fundraising challenge to Washoe County Schools and the children of Incline Elementary responded, raising over $1,000 to help NNCCF as they provide direct financial assistance to families in need as they battle childhood cancer.
On Monday, May 21, 2012 at 2:15 p.m. there will be a presentation of funds with the students of Incline Elementary School Student Council. The event is open to all as NNCCF congratulates and honors the enormous efforts of Incline Elementary School students for helping others in their community.

The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF) is the only organization dedicated solely to supporting children with cancer and their families in Northern Nevada and the eastern Sierra region. The Foundation was formed when Angel Kiss Foundation and Keaton Raphael Memorial (Reno office) legally merged on Sept. 1, 2009. NNCCF continues to build on established programs and more effectively use donations. NNCCF is a comprehensive resource organization providing financial and emotional assistance, advocacy, awareness and research funds. Since its inception, the Foundation has helped approximately 300 families and provided more than $1.5 million in direct financial assistance.
