RESTON, VA. - CancerFree KIDS, a nonprofit organization supporting pediatric cancer research, has benefitted from Rays of Hope Jewelry, an effort by Reston teenagers Cara and Jenna Ainge to create a collection of jewelry to raise money for cancer research.

To date, the girls have raised $990 for CancerFree KIDS by selling their jewelry collection at Duck's General Store, owned by Bill and Kathy Nye, who return 100 percent of the proceeds they make from the jewelry back to Rays of Hope. The proceeds then get donated to CancerFree KIDS to fund life-saving research for children with cancer.

“We are so grateful to Cara and Jenna Ainge for creating Rays of Hope and donating their proceeds to CancerFree KIDS,” said Ellen Flannery, executive director of CancerFree KIDS. “It’s amazing to see these girls make such an incredible effort to support and make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer.”
