Ferguson letter: Lancaster High’s reasons to Relay

-A A +A

Everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love.
In case you didn’t know, Relay for Life is a 12-hour festival that raises money for the American Cancer Society. The event is 12 hours because cancer never sleeps.
Through the fun and games, lives are honored, survivors are lifted and memories are shared.
Lancaster High School Relay for Life started because we wanted to make a difference. We wanted to start a group at our school that anyone could be a part of. Relay for Life was our choice because everyone is affected by cancer in some way, shape or form.
We want to prove that our school and town can make a difference!
Relay is not about raising the most money or having the best T-shirt designs. Relay for Life is about coming together as one. It is about showing survivors that they can do anything and fighting to raise money for a cure to remember those lost.
I Relay for my family. I Relay for my town. I Relay for my school. I Relay for Life. Why do you Relay?
