Students at the Rayen Early College walked laps around the Chaney campus track Friday morning for a good cause.

The mini Relay for Life was organized by the Lunch Bunch, a community service organization at Rayen.

The community was invited to join the students in walking around the track to raise money for research and to support the American Cancer Society.

The entire student body walked the first lap together with the goal to raise $1,000.

“This is sixth, seventh and eighth graders to start learning to give back to their community,” said school nurse Sandy Huziak. “We gave them the option of three or four different projects and this is the one they picked because there are very few kids who don’t know someone who have had a problem with cancer.”

Organizers said the events provide an opportunity to teach the students about community involvement and how to make a difference.

The Chaney Drum Line and YSU’s ROTC Color Guard also participated in the event.
