Riley Damiano

Patterson, New York

Riley Damiano, 17, of Patterson, N.Y., a junior at Wooster School, has raised approximately $11,000 for pediatric cancer research as part of an initiative she created called “The Blue Lollipop Project.” In memory of a child who loved blue lollipops and died from brain cancer, the initiative sells blue lollipops, donates one to a child in a hospital and donates all profits to The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation, which supports cancer research and families of children with cancer.
