High School Seniors Sanzio Angeli, of Clover Hill High School, and Dylan Whitesel, of Midlothian High School, hope to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer research and break a world record at the same time. They are combining their love for model rocketry with community citizenship to create "Rocket4theCure." Sanzio and Dylan are selling model rockets for $10 each to be launched simultaneously, hoping to launch 4,000 rockets, which would shatter the standing record, all while raising money for The Central Virginia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.
