Students Selling Bracelets to Help Find a Cure for Cancer
Kevin Hughes and others for one of this year's Relay for Life teams will sell bracelets at Wayne Valley High School. Relay for Life is a annual event that raises money for the American Cancer Society.
Kevin Hughes is at it again.
Hughes, a Wayne Valley High School student, and members of his Relay for Life team will sell bracelets to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Hughes’ Keep Calm and Cure On 2013 team will attempt to sell 300 red bracelets at Wayne Valley March 25 to 29 as part of their Relay for Life work. Courtney and Kelly Ross and Carly Struyk are the team captains.
“It’s in my blood. Volunteering, being a leader, and saving lives is who I am and now that I have finished one project, I’m expecting a great turnout for this one,” Hughes said. “There’s no greater satisfaction in life than helping someone or knowing that you are contributing to saving lives.”
Hughes’ team has already raised more than $2,300.
Relay for Life is an annual all-night fundraiser held at Wayne Valley High School. Thousands of people attend the event and hundreds walk around the school track all night to raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). The event generated more than $90,000 for the ACS last year.
Hughes donated more than $1,400 to Officer Bob Franco after he was severely injured during Superstorm Sandy. Hughes and his friends sold hundreds of candy canes at school and received donations from across the country thanks to his Help a Hero campaign.
