Mount Carmel Academy students – along with students from other New Orleans high schools and Loyola University – presented Tulane Cancer Center with a check for $38,505 on January 14, 2019. The funds were raised through Pink Games and student-led fundraising efforts.
According to Tulane University’s website, the donation “will benefit the Cancer Center's Patient Relief Fund - a resource for providing much-needed financial assistance for those facing a cancer diagnosis as well as financial burdens that could become barriers to their care. The Fund assists with everything from medical bills and prescription co-pays to transportation and lodging for patients who have to travel to New Orleans for their clinic visits and treatments.”
Since the partnership with Tulane Cancer Center in 2013, the Pink Games have raised more than $155,000.
