Local teens raise over $105,000 to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s pediatric cancer research. Catwalk for Cancer is a benefit coordinated by two local teens, Ashley Raz and Tallie Elisha, to raise funds for pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Since May 2012, when Tallie Elisha was first diagnized with Leukemia, Team Tallie (a fundraising organization started by Ashley Raz and Tallie Elisha) has raised over $105,000 for Pediatric Cancer Research. It started as a bake sale, then a simple fundraising page through MSKCC’s website, to a first-of-its kind Kids Fashion show where “kids help kids” by having fun and raising money for a great cause.
