Gabriella Feygin

Excelsior, Minnesota

Gabriella Feygin, 11, of Excelsior, Minn., a sixth-grader at Minnetonka Middle School West, learned about the devastating statistics around childhood cancer when she was 6 years old; since then, she has raised more than $250,000 for organizations centered on child health. She has championed yearly fundraising drives and been instrumental in getting other children involved in helping others—something she believes kids can do at any age.
