UNL Junior Board

UNL College Board

The Sammy's Superheroes UNL Junior Board is a branch of Sammy's Superheroes Foundation.  Alayna Wilson started the Jr. Board a few years ago in Lincoln, NE. The purpose for creating the Junior Board was to give students the opportunity to be a part of, and lend a helping hand in this incredible organization.  Over the past few years the Junior Board has grown substantially and was recently accepted as a registered student organization at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  This gives every student attending UNL an opportunity to become a member. The Junior Board meets every two weeks to discuss upcoming fundraisers, educate each other on the seriousness of pediatric cancer, and participate in relationship building exercises.  The Jr. Board hosts around 3 fundraisers each semester and has successfully recruited multiple Greek houses at UNL to help with the events.  

The Sammy’s Superheroes Junior Board at UNL works within the Lincoln community to spread awareness of pediatric cancer through fundraisers.  We have expanded past UNL to Omaha and we have helped students at UNO to start up their own Sammy's Superheroes Junior Board.  Together we sent over 250 Christmas cards to children battling cancer over the holiday season.  Together, we hope to grow further and establish more collegiate clubs of Sammy's Superheroes Junior Boards and spread awareness of pediatric cancer throughout Nebraska.
