For more information or to purchase tickets, visit GREAT VALLEY – RELAY FOR LIFE June 3 Teams from all over the Main Line will gather to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This is not a run, nor a race, but rather a demonstration of the ongoing fight against cancer as each team has at least one member circling the track at all times during the event. The day opens with guest speakers and then a celebratory lap for the survivors before each of the teams takes to the track. Throughout the event, teams set up stations where they host fundraisers, selling food, crafts, games, etc. When not taking a turn working the team booth or walking the track, relayers enjoy booths provided by other teams as well as music and emcee-led games and activities before nightfall. The event closes with announcements of top individual and team fundraisers, followed by another speaker and/ or performance. Then all in attendance take to the track illuminated with luminaire purchased in honor of survivors, in support of those battling now or in memory of those who cancer took too soon. It is a beautiful yet solemn reminder of just how many lives are touched by cancer, and why the cancer society’s mission is so important. This year’s event will take place from 3 to 9 p.m. at Great Valley High School, 225 N. Pottstown Pike, in Malvern.

We regret the error. Below is the full photo and caption. Members of the Schuylkill Elementary Art Club display some of the bowls they made for the PACS’ 10th Annual Empty Bowls event in November. PASD was proud to be a partner in this effort, with students at the high school and middle school also contributing their talents in creating bowls for the event, which raised more than $18,000 to fight hunger in our community.
