Wildcats for the Wright Cause Logo

In the Fall of 2010, our teacher & co-worker, John Wright, was diagnosed with Leukemia. At that same time, our school also had two students, Andrew and Jonathan, that had been battling cancer. It left our school community feeling helpless and asking, “How can we all help?” and “What can we do?”

Although two of those amazing people lost their battles with cancer in 2011, we continue to come together to walk, to remember, to celebrate those who have won, or to just enjoy the company of Woodrow’s one-of-a-kind community in a fun-filled afternoon.

Through funds raised with the Wright Cause Walk, we support current Woodrow family and staff needs for financial help while battling cancer or terminal illness.

The question is, why wait for something to happen to help, when we can all come together and be prepared to help if something does in the future?


The Annual Wright Cause Walk is held each May here at Woodrow Wilson Academy. For over a decade, the funds raised from this walk have been used for supporting staff/students and their families battling cancer or terminal illness. We hope you will join us this year!

In memory of our JDubbs and Mr. Brave…Gone, but never forgotten, and for all people who have battled, are battling, or lost their battle with that horrendous enemy we call cancer, we will always walk for you.
