          Hannah has been a leader in her community and taken charge of educating her school and peers of the importance of allergy awareness. From speaking in front of her entire school at a young age and volunteering with the Sweet Caroline Foundation, to educating staff at her work and moving to ensure epi-pen boxes were installed for public use, Hannah would stop at nothing to make the world a safer place for those with food allergies. Hannah continues to volunteer with the foundation today and we are so thankful for all of her help. Hannah was awarded the Sweet Caroline Scholarship in 2020.

She covered a wagon in any purple decorations that she could find, filled it to the brim with pamphlets, and set out on her mission. Jillian went door to door in her neighbourhood educating anyone she could on the importance of allergy awareness, while also collecting donations for Anaphylaxis Canada. Jillian continues her volunteer work with her family at the Sweet Caroline Run every fall. Jillian was awarded the Sweet Caroline Scholarship in 2020.
