C’s Week benefits Leukemia & Lypmphoma Society

The Torrey Pines High School Cheer program is hosting C’s Week, a week of fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s student series campaign in memory of “Coach C” Scott Chodorow . The inspirational cheer coach and teacher from Torrey Pines passed away on Nov. 1, 2014 after battling lymphoma for more than a year.

Coach C was described by many as the “heart of Torrey Pines,” who had the opportunity to make an impact as a teacher, the school’s ASB advisor and cheer coach for 10 years.

Throughout C’s Week, local sponsors will be donating a portion of the day’s proceeds to LLS: Jersey Mike’s on Monday, Oct. 31; The Baked Bear on Tuesday, Nov. 1; Chipotle on Wednesday, Nov. 2; Luna Grill on Thursday, Nov. 3; and Rubio’s on Friday, Nov. 4.

The week will close out with a 5K fun walk on campus on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 10 a.m. There is a suggested donation of $20 for the fun walk. To register or for more information visit

The LLS’ student series campaign includes schools throughout the country raising funds for blood cancer research. In one seven hour school day, 140 people will be diagnosed with a blood cancer and 42 people will lose their battle.
