For four years now, Bethpage High School junior Adina Rahman has been helping those diagnosed with Lupus. She recently provided a donation of $650 to the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens. 

To date, Adina has garnered a total of $2,250 for the Alliance. She presented a check to Patricia D’Accolti, Executive Director of the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens chapter, on May 16. Ms. D’Accolti congratulated Adina for her efforts and presented her with a certificate of excellence. 

Adina’s passion for this cause generates from family members that have been affected by the disease and a drive to make a difference in finding a cure. To raise the money, she held raffles at musicals and other school shows throughout the year. She is also actively involved in the SADD Club.
The district salutes Adina for her passion and dedication to raising money for the Lupus Alliance.
