Class Act is brought to you by United Federal Credit Union, the Reno Aces and Circus Circus.
Reno- (NV) Peanuts can be deadly to those with severe allergies.
A local student has taken her medical condition and changed it into a drive to help protect others and this month she is News Four's Class Act award winner.
Just recently we surprised Damonte Ranch High School student Molly Gallagher.
She has learned how to protect herself from peanuts and a few years ago Molly and her sister Melissa along with their family started the non-profit group, Peanut Patrol.
Through education and fundraisers they are working with students and the public in 14 states to give tips and bring about awareness, especially when it comes to bulllying that often happens to kids with peanut allergies.
Molly has organized and run an annual Peanut Patrol bowling tournament for the past 4 years raising thousands of dollars for Angel Service Dogs, a group that helps people with deadly allergies and the work that the Peanut Patrol does.
Congratulations to Molly Gallagher, News Four's Class Act Award Winner!
