Creating a better world free of the scourge of cancer is what motivated hundreds of Huntington students to turnout for last weekend’s Relay For Life on the Blue Devil athletic fields.
The need is greater than ever as the worldwide battle against cancer in all its forms continues. The Huntington community will do its part to aid the fight when it comes together at Huntington High School for this year’s edition of Relay For Life on Saturday, June 15
An enthusiastic organizing committee is helping Huntington High School’s Relay For Life take shape. A school-wide kick-off assembly recently jump-started this year’s initiative, which has already attracted 20 teams and $8,000 in contributions.
At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!
Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. The event is 12 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
