Students at Farmersville Junior High School will end the school year by giving back to the community in a meaningful way by hosting their very own Relay for Life event.

Community members are invited to participate at the event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 at the Farmersville High School stadium.

Fundraising events include Grade Level Penny Wars and team competitions. In the Penny Wars event, other grade levels can sabotage other grades by adding dollars bills and silver into their buckets, thus making them in the negatives.

Citizens are invited to drop off pennies for their favorite grade level at the campus.

As of Thursday, May 9, more than $500 had been collected by students.

Those who are cancer survivors are invited to attend the ceremony and can do so by notifying FJHS Vice Principal Ashley McCurdy at 972-782-6202 or via email at [email protected]

A survivors’ lap will be offered.

Those who lost their lives to cancer will also be honored and their relatives are invited to participate in the event by notifying McCurdy.
