Washington High School’s 11th Annual Jordan Scheer Children’s Relay for Life took place Friday, April 29, at Scanlan Stadium on the WHS campus.
The event was put together by the WHS student council and leadership class.
Approximately $20,261.25 was raised from the event.
Proceeds are donated to the Franklin County Relay for Life and benefit the American Cancer Society and cancer awareness.
Over 500 students in grades three through six from the School District of Washington and neighboring parochial schools participated in the event.
This year’s event chairs were seniors Sammie Brueggemann, Kristen Mittler and Jaimie Kuchem and juniors Libbie Harrison, Madison Straatmann and Dylan Brocato.
The relay is named in honor of Jordan Scheer, a WHS graduate who lost his battle to cancer shortly after his graduation in 2005.
Speaking at the event was Washington High School junior Lexie Ingram, who’s younger brother, Alec, currently is battling cancer. Lexi and her family led the walk as the event began.
The theme was superheroes. The slogan was, “Searching for a cure or soaring through the sky, heroes are everywhere; watch them fly by. Students by day and heroes by night, relay is on a mission to win the fight!”
