Central’s National Honor Society (NHS) will host Relay for Life on May 14 this year. Students are able to participate for this event by simply showing up to the track on this day, walk a few laps, play some games, and donate money to the cause.
“I like to do Relay for Life because it helps a great cause that has affected everyone in some way. It is a great way to give back and it brings our local community together,” said senior Riley Kipp
Relay for Life raises money and awareness for cancer. This event takes place all across the country, and NHS has hosted it here for years. It takes place overnight, where teams camp out around the track with fun games and food. Members of each team take turns walking around the lap all night, and fundraise for the cause.
Relay for Life is an important event, because it is an easy way for everyone to get involved and make a difference. With the help of this event, the American Cancer Society is able to progress with cancer research for finding a cure for this dreadful disease. Fundraising is therefore easy because it is a problem that affects everyone and is a fun way to help out.
Everyone is encouraged to attend and show their support on May 14, and raise money to fight cancer.
