Relay for Life

Relay for Life Logo
The Relay for Life at Laurelville Elementary is moving forward. This week, students will be selling window stars for $1.00 to raise money. All of the stars will be posted in the window of the cafeteria.

VanCuren's Graffics is offering Relay for Life T-shirts for sale. Each shirt is $10.00. For each shirt sold, VanCuren's will donate $5.00 to the cause.

I'm glad I'm on the leadership team and I really want to try to walk the whole time and stay up all night.

I think the relay for life walk was an excellent idea! The stars are selling like crazy! When I was out there for only 5 minutes I already sold 9 stars. I can't wait for the walk at the fair grounds. I'll show you I can walk all of the 20 hours! I bet I can if I have a hot dog and a mountain dew in my hands!

I am going to try to buy a T-shirt if my dad gives me money and I'll try to buy a star because my grandma Sue died of cancer. I think the relay for life walk at our school was a great idea whoever thought of it.

I think that the Relay for life was a great idea. I am really glad that I am on the leadership team because I really want to help raise money to help find a cure for cancer!!! Like Katie said I want to try to walk the whole time but I know I can stay up the whole night!! I am going to try to buy a star because my Grandma Pat Died from having cancer for so many years and cancer is a horrible sickness that some people get and I want to help to protect them from getting that so they won't have to go through the pain and misery that I watched my grandma go through every day!!!

So people please help with the Relay For Life thing!!!!!!!

I think the relay is a great idea. It will help raise money to find a cure for cancer. We need to find a cure for cancer for the victims of cancer. It's not like a cure is just gonna fall out of the sky!

Mr. McGuire,

I think that the relay for life is a great idea. It is one of the greatest ideas to fight cancer (well I think). Then scientists can take the money and make some treatment for the cancer. I am glad I got picked to help participate and be able to walk the 20 hour long walk at the Pickaway county fair grounds in July. Thanks for letting us do such a cool thing!!!

Oh and I am going to try to walk the whole 20 hours with a coffee with extra cream and sugar, maybe a French vanilla cappuccino,Pepsi,or Mountain dew. I am aiming for the things that have caffeine in them because that is what keep people up and awake. That is why you see teachers drinking 8 "0" Clock Coffee or Pepsi.

Good luck to anybody who think that they can walk for 20 hours non-stop.

I was not sure if my family was affected by cancer or not.
After talking with my Mom I found out that my Great Aunt and Uncle suffered from cancer. I'm glad to help out in any way.I hope everything is succsesful.

I think this is a great idea! I had a grandmother that had cancer and my mom works with kids that have cancer, they could really use our help.
