The South Effingham Middle School Beta Club got a big response to its fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

SEMS students and faculty raised $4,535.48 to help fight cancer, which earned the school a “Champion of Challenge” banner. The students brought in coins, and SEMS also raised money with a jeans day.

Connie Carter’s homeroom earned a Gold Pennant for raising the most money, $382.50.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services.

SEMS has a Beta membership of 263 students, who work hard to live up to the club’s motto of “let us lead by serving others.”
