Chicago Public Schools students from Southwest side Hancock High raise money for the American Cancer Society

Over forty Chicago Public Schools students from Hancock High School's National Honor Society began fundraising for the May 16 American Cancer Society Relay For Life.  Starting at 6:00 p.m. Saturday, May 16 and all through the night, these CPS students and their teacher sponsors will join other teams on the University of Chicago's Stagg Field to raise money for the fight against cancer.  The Relay For Life movement features community and campus events that offer an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer through all-night events:

  • Organized, overnight community fundraising walk
  • Teams of people camp out around a track
  • Members of each team take turns walking around the track
  • Food, games and activities provide entertainment and build camaraderie
  • Family-friendly environment for the entire community

Each National Honor Society member remains committed to raising at least $50 so the entire team can donate at least $1000.  To donate to this cause and to support young people's service-learning experience, visit the Hancock team's page.
