2014 Fellows broke chapter records by raising over $40,000 through their fundraising efforts, crediting their success to teamwork and the excellent leadership of the Chicago and National Board. Thirty-one chapters across the nation are included in fundraising efforts, as well, which will continue until June 30, 2014.
