Our Mission Statement
The students of Klein Oak High School, pledge to dedicate themselves to raise money for cancer prevention, to raise awareness of this deadly disease, and to give students the chance to make an impact in the fight against cancer.
This club was started by a group of freshman in 2014 who saw a very important need at Klein Oak. A need for the student body to come together as a community and fight the horrible disease known as cancer. The objective of this club is to give students different ways to help in fighting back. Some of the annual fundraisers this club is involved in are Color Run and Relay For Life, but we are constantly looking to improve and participate in new and exciting adventures. Our goal for the 2016-2017 school year is to raise $3000.
Meet Our 2017-2018 Officers!

"Hi, my name's Carter! I'm a senior at Klein Oak who would like to encourage all of the freshman to get really involved in school. I was a member of the committee for Relay for Life for 3 years and I participated as a team captain raising money for 3 years."

"I started this club because I raise money for cancer individually and I wanted to give other students an easier opportunity. Most kids want to help, they just don't know how. That's what I hope to accomplish with this club, for students and teachers alike to help make a difference."
