Molly Matthaei, a fifth-grade student at Davison Avenue Intermediate School in the Malverne Union Free School District, was a top fundraiser in the district’s 2015 Relay for Life fundraiser.
This year, Molly is well on her way to achieving the same goal, having raised more than $2,100 to date. She secures donations by standing outside grocery stores on the weekends with her dad and speaking at church masses. Her efforts also include a $1,000 donation from the Michelle O’Neil Foundation for her cause this year. Molly is motivated to raise the funds in support of a family friend whose child was diagnosed with brain cancer.
