Relay for Life 2014

Both schools held separate Relay for Life events recently, raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around the track. Relay events are up to 24 hours in length and, because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times. Read more here.  See photos and fundraising totals from the 2013 events here.
