Emily Johnson

Hello! My name is Emily Johnson. I am a freshman at St.Charles East High School. At school I participate in dance team, marching/concert band, and student council. Outside of school I like to dance at my studio, draw, and read.
My amazing community kicker partner is Ian Vertrees. Ian is my step-father who has been there for me since I was six years old. Ian has made many charitable acts through the community over the few years we have been here.
I am very passionate about Kick-A-Thon and raising funds for cancer charities. My father is a survivor of Ewing’s sarcoma. He was diagnosed at 12 and has been in remission since 1984. At the time of his diagnoses there was only a 3% survival rate, so I am very lucky that my father survived. But from his experience I was able to hear about the many challenges his family faced during his treatments. Now I am glad to hear there are so many organizations out there that help support these families through tough times.
Many should support Kick-A-Thon because the funds that come from our fundraising during the event help families immensely who have a loved one battling cancer. You don’t need to donate a lot, every dollar counts.
