Carl Hayden Community High School’s Student Government hosted the Central Phoenix Relay for Life event, February 23, to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Several Carl Hayden clubs were out to support the event, the Desiderata Student Government, along with community teams. The event kicked off with the presentation of colors by the Falcon color guard followed by fundraising activities, food, and entertainment provided by the Falcon Wrestlerettes, to help us STOMP out cancer. The event was organized by science teacher Andrew Scott.
Student Government collected donations for luminarias to line the track that were decorated in honor of survivors, caregivers, and loved ones lost to cancer. The teams celebrated survivors with an honorary lap at the beginning and the event closed out with a lap in silence to honor those that have been lost. Through the hard work of Student Government, community members, and the generous donations from corporate sponsors the Central Phoenix Relay for Life was able to raise over $14,000 for the American Cancer Society over the Relay season. Next year the goal is to raise $20,000 with the support of more Phoenix Union clubs.
