JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Autrey Mill Middle School students took the FIGHT to cancer at its sixth walk-a-thon.
FIGHT – the Fighting Igniting Giving Hope Together Club – held its sixth walk-a-thon where students, staff and teachers walked laps to raise money for the Johns Creek Relay for Life.
The event was coordinated by the FIGHT Club, Student Council and Junior Beta Club. The walkers enjoyed music from an awesome DJ, and prizes were given for the most laps walked and most money collected.
The event, one of many fundraising efforts that the Autrey Mill Middle School team will conduct, raised more than $900 for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life Johns Creek.
"Everyone there was really into it because it contributes to such a good cause. It was very positive seeing the school come together. Plus, who can turndown Dip-N-Dots?" said Julia Hope York, Autrey Mill Middle School student and cancer survivor.
Join FIGHT in the Relay for Life Johns Creek 2014 Friday, May 2, beginning at 6 p.m. at Taylor Road Middle School.
