Students take cause into their own hands

SKEENA JUNIOR students' team Skeena Cancer Cause have raised $1,500 from fundraisers and events they planned and carried out

SKEENA JUNIOR Relay for Life team Skeena Cancer Cause (aka Kids Kicking Cancer) has raised $1

SKEENA JUNIOR students participating in the Relay for Life have raised $1,500 so far, planning fundraisers and carrying them out all on their own initiative.

As team Skeena Cancer Cause, they have held several bake sales and other events to raise money and will operate the school canteen during the relay and donate those proceeds too, said principal Phillip Barron, adding that they could reach $2,000.

Barron and vice-principal Cory Killoran are just in the background to provide support to the students.

The Relay for Life takes off at 10 a.m. and continues all day until the luminary lap at 10 p.m. at the Skeena Junior track.

As of the end of the day May 9, more than $132,000 has been raised, according to the Terrace page of the Relay for Life website.
