As reported by Mike Corbin with WIBC, 93.1FM,  some enterprising Indiana grade schoolers led by one young lady are doing their bit for cancer research.

Students at Orchard Park School in Indianapolis, Indiana donated the $400 they raised to 2 Million Dogs Thursday.

Fifth-grader Carly Levinsohn heard about the group. She was on hand to present the check to Robinson and his dogs Indiana and Hudson outside the school (pictured).

As part of a class assignment to build a business, Carly and other students in her class chose to donate their profits to the group. Carly says she hopes the money helps researchers cure cancer in dogs and people. Robinson says the donation is important because it will help toward that end. He adds that raising awareness is also crucial. Robinson says many people don’t know that pets can also get brain, breast and other types of cancers and that the disease has a similar physiological makeup in dogs as in humans.

 

Thank you Carly and all the kids who Puppied Up! and made the donation happen.
