Many people helped Casey begin raising funds for Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital) in 2007. Her high school, Downers Grove South, set the bar very high with their constant support for Casey. The sports teams and choirs held fundraisers that got Be the Cure® up and running. Several other high schools and elementary schools followed their example and participated, too. Northside College Prep High School in Chicago never met Casey until they presented her with a $7,200 donation from a volleyball marathon they had on her behalf! (They read an article in the Chicago Sun-Times about Casey and decided to adopt her!) Since then, Northside College Prep has held an annual fundraiser and are now the largest single donor to Be the Cure® for Lurie Children’s.
