Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School is founded on life-affirming principles that are designed to build and maintain a peaceful productive community where everyone is valued and everyone is expected to contribute something valuable to the collective. Thus, the members of the Sankofa community affirm that the freedom they seek is the freedom to be their best selves, so that they can build strong relationships, healthy families, and a peaceful world characterized by justice and harmony.
Participants of the Sankofa Freedom Academy Mini-THON® 2021 joined more than 90,000 students across the country to help conquer childhood cancer.
In the U.S., 16,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year – that’s two classrooms of kids every day. Dollars raised by Sankofa Freedom Academy Mini-THON® 2021 supported some of the latest breakthroughs in childhood cancer research. Having a better understanding of how cancer works will help Four Diamonds’ researchers develop new, more effective treatments to test through clinical trials and save more lives.
The support received last year ensured that every Four Diamonds child, regardless of income, received the highest quality of childhood cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care.
