Norcross HS Students Kick Off Relay For Life Fundraiser

The club started the fund-raising season to benefit the American Cancer Society with a fun day of after-school events on Friday.

Norcross High's Relay For Life club has officially kicked off the year with a Relay Fun Day.

At Norcross, Relay For Life is comprised of a team of students who work to raise money for the American Cancer Society through school events, the Internet and word of mouth. This year, the club's goal is to raise $80,000.

After an icebreaker that involved swapping seats and sitting on top of others' laps last Friday, the club and its members, led by teachers Doug Maloney and Amy Gallois, broke off into four groups to start the Relay season.

For four hours, the students brainstormed ideas on how to use publicity, marketing, the Internet and their personal strengths to help reach the team's goal before the end of the school year.

Patch was at the Relay Fun Day event to capture some action and see what the Norcross team is all about.
