Coaches and student-athletes staffed a series of games such as face painting, putt-putt golf, football toss and hockey shot in the afternoon. The group then participated in a team walk with the other teams. Cancer survivors also walked a lap and stopped to light luminaries that lined the track at Houghton High School.
“It was great to see the department’s participation in this year’s Relay for Life,” said volleyball student-athlete Jordana Kero. “Being the first year, we weren’t sure how it would turn out but the athletes did an awesome job fundraising, and the staff helped out generously at the event. I’m very happy with the amount of money we raised for the American Cancer Society and look forward to building off of this for next year.”
The group raised over $1500 for the American Cancer Society during the 24 hour event.
