WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) -- On Thursday, the city of Waterbury turned red.

The ‘red out’ was made possible by a senior at Sacred Heart High School.

Katie Brown is bringing awareness and raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Katie was 2 years old she was diagnosed with leukemia.

"Katie’s Quest For A Cure" has seven weeks to raise $15,000. That’s $1,000 for every year Katie has been cured.

"The support that I am getting with everything is making it all worthwhile, and knowing that the impact that this is going to have on the leukemia society and everyone living with cancer, I know that this is worth all the work,” Brown said.

There is a little more than a month left to donate.
