Lawrentians are lacing up their skates to fight cancer – and you can help. Lawrenceville will host a Scott Hamilton CARES FoundationSk8 to Elimin8 Cancer event on Saturday, April 6 from 8:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. in the Loucks Ice Center. You can register to skate, as well as donate and/or fundraise here using the promo code LVILLE.
The CARES Foundation has built partnerships with leading institutions, cancer support groups, and researchers in an effort to spur collaboration and cooperation in ridding the world of cancer. The Cancer Research Institute will received 20 percent of money raised by Lawrentians and the remainder will help continue to fund Hamilton’s goal to support research for new cancer treatments that are less toxic to avoid the devastating side effects of the more harmful treatments used today.
Lawrenceville Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer was organized by Lana Utley ’20, who has already raised nearly $6,000 toward the event’s $15,000 goal. The Fourth Former is a long-time skater who had health scare last summer. Thankfully, it was a false alarm. Utley is completely healthy and the experience, she said, “made me think of my family, friends and countless others that have been affected by this non-discriminatory illness, and how difficult it must be for them. I want to try and make a difference any way I can.”

Retired U.S. Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) spoke at Lawrenceville on Monday evening, quoting Lincoln’s first inaugural address as he encouraged students to “search "for the better angels of our nature” during this time of political diverseness.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
