Date:5/18/2009

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- In a program that gives kids a chance to help other kids, students at Oak Point Intermediate School in Eden Prairie, MN, raised an incredible $42,858.24 through Pennies for Patients, one of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's School & Youth Programs.

This was $20,000 more than the school raised last year. The money will help fund LLS's research and patient services initiatives.

Oak Point was not the only school across the country to have an extremely successful campaign. The other four top fundraising schools were: Princeton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio ($38,378); Mt. Pisgah Christian School in Johns Creek, Ga. ($32,830); Chaska Middle School West in Chaska, MN ($29,240.58); and Orange High School in Orange, Calif. ($28,000).

"It is so inspiring to see the enthusiasm students bring to this program," said Kristy Lysik, LLS's national director, School & Youth Programs. "Pennies for Patients and the other School & Youth Programs are all about teaching children the value of community service, and the students see that their participation really makes a difference to people who are touched by blood cancers."

Nationally, 25,000 schools registered in the program for the 2008-09 school year, and LLS is projecting results of more than $19 million raised.

Oak Point had special inspiration this year that gave the students an extra incentive: One of their teachers, Mona Hanson, was diagnosed with lymphoma last December.

"The staff and students really stepped up for her," said Oak Point teacher Mark Wavinak, the Pennies coordinator. The school was also visited by Mi
