The Lachlan McIntosh Tannery Foundation

There are just no words for what the students of Riverside High did this week. In just one {spirit-filled} week, they raised $73,665.84 for this foundation to continue to do what we patients and their families as they face some of the hardest days of their lives. Not only that, they also helped us raise awareness for Be The Match--many of them joining the donor registry themselves. RHS Spirit, you are simply amazing. Thank you for this incredible gift that will live on and on. We love you, Warrior Nation. You #diditforLachlan and we could not be more grateful. Love & Hope always.
