GALLIPOLIS — Ms. Santos’ third grade class at Addaville Elementary School recent won a recent change war at the school, with funds raised to go to this year’s American Cancer Society Gallia County Relay For Life.
The winning class was presented with a bag of “Lifesavers” and a pizza party to celebrate their accomplishment. A Relay For Life representative presented the candy and held a discussion with the class on what Gallia County Relay For Life means.
The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every cancer in every community, with four million participants in 6,000 events worldwide in 2015.
Relay For Life is the community’s opportunity to help save lives from cancer by taking delivering message to more people and raising more dollars to fund the fight.
Gallia County Relay For Life will take place Friday, June 3, with opening ceremonies at 6 p.m. at Gallipolis City Park. The annual Survivor Reception will be 4-6 p.m. the same day in the Survivor’s Tent at the event.
