The Lincoln-Sudbury Relay for Life Team is currently comprised of 215 students of which 90%+ are student athletes at the high school. Last year’s LS Relay Team raised over $90,000 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) and were the #6 high school in the nation. The Executive Leadership Team (picture attached from May 2023 Relay Event) are all current student athletes and leaders on their respective teams. This year the LS Relay Team has already raised $16,000+ with a goal of raising $120,000 by May for ACS. https://secure.acsevents.
This year’s fundraisers have included a Spike Ball Tournament where they raised $1700+. The LS Varsity Girls Field Hockey Team did a Stick it to Cancer bake sale and raised $862 for the LS Relay Team. In addition, the LS Relay Team has been going to Varsity games and selling luminaria bags and requesting donations. So far, the LS Relay Team attended Football, Hockey and Basketball games, selling luminaria bags. Luminaria bags are lit around the track at the Relay for Life event in May in honor of anyone touched be cancer. This moving ceremony happens at dusk where all the luminaria bags are lit and students walk silently around the track in remembrance of those impacted by cancer. The LS Relay Team partnered with the Tri-Town Relay Team during a recent LS Hockey vs. Masconomet matchup selling luminaria bags and requesting donations. LS Hockey players who are also members of the LS Relay Team (over half the hockey team participates on the LS Relay Team) made posters in honor of loved ones touched by cancer. Posters were hung around the rink. (See photo)
These student athletes and leaders have made a tremendous impact at the high school and continue to dedicate their time to raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Per your mission statement, I strongly believe this group of students, most of whom are student athletes, are creating meaningful change and inspiring others.
