In an effort to raise awareness regarding ways to fight cancer, Wellington Middle School will host a mini Relay for Life at the school on May 17.
As an extension of the Larimer County Relay For Life, the school is making a commitment to have someone walking at all times between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. and staff, students, parents and community members can join in to support the cause. The middle school will also host activities, class competitions and chances to win prizes and T-shirts throughout the day.
Relay For Life is a community-based event where groups of people come together and form teams to raise money for the fight against cancer. Additionally, Relay For Life is an opportunity for the American Cancer Society to educate the public about prevention and early detection of cancer and the services provided to the community. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity, and over the years has helped fund 38 Nobel Prize winners in cancer research.
