On Monday, May 21, 2018, the Elanco School District will be sponsoring a county-wide Relay for Life where all students will walk for those that are suffering with cancer and raise funds in order to find a cure for the disease. Students in Grades 7 – 12 will walk from 7:55 – 11:00 am, while students in Grades K – 6 walk at some point between 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
The Elanco Health Council is taking orders for t-shirts now because there are seven other districts joining us this year and the American Cancer Society (ACS) needs time to turn around the orders in each district. Every participating district will be wearing the same t-shirts in order to unite all of the districts. If you are interested in purchasing a t-shirt (proceeds go directly to the ACS for our event), please download the Relay for Life T-Shirt 2018 Order Form that has a larger picture of the shirt design.
The cost of the shirt is $10 and the money can be sent to Julie Groft in the high school. Checks should be made payable to the American Cancer Society and the deadline to order the shirts is April 12th. You don’t need to be a student to purchase a shirt.
The other districts participating this year are Ephrata, Pequea Valley, Conestoga Valley, Manheim Township, Hempfield, McCaskey and E-Town- these names will be on the back of the shirt along with ELANCO.
