New Hartford high school senior raises money for pediatric cancer program

NEW HARTFORD, NY — Luke Radel of New Hartford High School and his colleagues have raised $10,000 for Golisano Children’s Hospital through a fundraising and awareness campaign called “Lime for Luke.”

Luke is battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma and wants to help other families with sick children through fundraising.

In September, his classmates wore lime to raise money for new sleeper sofas for parents with children in the children’s program at the children’s hospital.

Monday night, Luke will also be hosting an Election Eve Special on his YouTube channel, Elected News, to help the cause.

“It’s not often that a bunch of politicians get together to do something good, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to do that,” he said.
