According to the American Cancer Society, one of the most common types of cancer for people under age 20 is Leukemia, and to help bring this sad, tragic fact to light, Coral Springs Charter School’s DECA Club is hosting a Light Against Leukemia drive-thru event.

“We’re just trying to help our peers out,” said Phillip Khaskin, a member of the club and organizer along with Maliha Mahmud and Barbara Kaklias — all juniors at the school.

On Saturday, January 2, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Coral Springs Charter School parking lot, at 3205 N. University Drive, will be transformed into a parade to support The Light Against Leukemia and the fight against cancer.

This is the first year CSCS DECA has organized a drive-thru event, and Khaskin also believes the outing can safely signal the end to an awful year of Covid while paving the way to a brighter 2021.

For over 75 years, DECA, formerly known as the Distributive Education Club of America, has been associated with community high schools and provides future entrepreneurs and leaders opportunities to explore the various business, marketing, and management elements.

If unable to join the drive-thru event, Coral Spring Charter School DECA is accepting supplies and donations.
