Hopewell Elementary School recently held its eighth annual “Kids for a Cure” Mini Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society. For an entire school day, teams of students and staff walked the Oxford Area High School Stadium track for half-hour periods before passing the Relay for Life banner to the next team.
The relay is the final and largest event in a series of fundraisers sponsored by Hopewell’s students, staff and families to help in the fight against cancer. The pledges secured by students for the relay totaled over $3,300.
