Nebraska students have started a group dedicated to educating others about childhood cancer rates and raising research funds.

A student-led club dedicated to uniting the University of Nebraska–Lincoln community to battle childhood cancer will hold a roundtable discussion and “Stack-A-Thon” at 6 p.m. March 1 in Andersen Hall, Room 336.

The club, UNL with Purpose, was formed to bring attention to the fact that Nebraska ranks fifth in the nation in childhood cancer cases per capita.

The roundtable will provide details on how members of the campus community can advocate for children with cancer and raise funds to bolster research efforts.
