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 events.lls.org/pages/sd/TorreyPinesHighSchool-2017

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.
