“I am on the executive board of “Best Buddies” at my school, says Alison Horning “I have been raising money for pediatric cancer and leukemia since I was in 8th grade.”

Alison Horning says she became involved with this cause because one her friends was diagnosed with leukemia. That sparked her passion for pediatric cancer and leukemia awareness because she wanted to help her friend, It also made her realize how many others are going through the same terrible reality that her friend endured during her treatment. In addition, Hornung has also done some canned food drives and donated the food to local food pantries.

“It is important to give back because it is the greatest happiness anyone can feel. By making someone else happy and spreading positivity and love you are doing what every person was meant to do. Helping others is so important because you are bringing them happiness, giving them opportunities, and in some cases giving them a second chance at life,” states Hornung.
