While most 12-year-old girls are thinking about friends and the beach this summer, Ali Johnson is focusing on saving lives.
As a part of her church's Young Women's program, Ali is working with the Be the Match foundation. Her goal is to raise $750, which waives 25 percent of the registration fee for 30 people who would like to register as bone marrow donors.
In order to raise the money, Ali has a Hawaiian Ice and bake sale table set up in front of Utopia Tanning Salon in Marquette. She is also encouraging everyone ages 18 to 44 to join the registry, which she will have available on July 10.
"In Marquette, there aren't a lot of them. I haven't seen a bone marrow registry drive, like, ever," said Alixzandria "Ali" Johnson.
The fundraiser will take place on July 2, 10, and 31 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All baked goods and Hawaiian Ice are a dollar a piece.
