Katherine O’Donnell

Hello, my name is Katherine O’Donnell and I am a sophomore at St. Charles East High School. I am on the dance team as well as in band and a part of H.O.P.E. club. My two kickers are my mother, Bonnie McManus, and Emma Vacek. Emma was on the dance team when she was at East and also a dancer whom I looked up to. Emma is kicking for her godmother who passed away from cancer and all of the people who have been affected by her absence. My mother is adamant about helping cancer patients because in between having my older brother and me, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. My mom knows these organizations that the Kick-A-Thon supports is greatly helpful and reassuring to families with cancer. I know first hand of how cancer affects families, which is why I am passionate about helping people in the same circumstances my family and I were in; which is why I am kicking for my grandfather, grandmother and my mom. Countless numbers of people are affected by cancer in someway every year. The Kick-A-Thon raises money to help cancer patients through three main organizations: American Cancer Society, Living Well and Fox Valley Food for Health. Your donations are why these organizations are able to do what they do. That is why your help in any way makes a huge impact on cancer patients and their families. Thank you for taking time to support us in raising money for cancer patients and their families.
