Inspiring Good Cookie Stories...

Abbey Rogers

Inspired by a family friend's battle with pediatric cancer, high school student Abbey Rogers decided to host a 5K and bake sale fundraiser for her school project in 2012. This project has now turned into an annual community-wide event that raised $35,000 in its first two years alone. Abbey continues to inspire friends, family and groups around Charlotte to join the fight against pediatric cancer. Her 3rd annual event was just held in April 2014.
