ABC40 Honor Roll – Students Raise Money for Childhood Cancer

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – A group of 9th graders at The Middle School in West Springfield will be doing laps around the school track. They’ll be raising money in the fight against childhood cancer.

The event honors Laura Sypek, who lost her battle with cancer when she was in the 6th grade. Her favorite food was tomato soup so students will be donating all proceeds to an organization called “Soupy for Loopy”…. Laura’s nickname.

Last year the event raised over one thousand dollars and this year the students hope to make even more. The event is Thursday, June 13th during school hours. Donations can be made at Soupyforloopy.org
