TAES Mini Relay For Life

Students at Tyrone Area Elementary School recently participated in a ‘Mini Relay For Life’ to benefit the American Cancer Society. The students collected money and walked in the school gym. There was a theme just like the Blair County Relay For Life. The theme for this year’s Mini Relay was ‘Under the Big Top’. Students gathered in the gym for a check presentation to the Cancer Society at the end of the school day. They raised a total of $4,000. This is the most they have ever raised for the Mini Relay For Life. Students from the Middle School, High School, YMCA Preschool, and St. Matthew School also helped the Tyrone Elementary students with this special project. (The Daily Herald/Mark Raffetto)
