As Mr. Walkersville has officially ended, the National Honor Society has tallied up the money they intend to donate to the WHS Relay For Life team.

“We have raised $1,480,” said National Honor Society advisor and social studies teacher Jamie Skena.

“It’s an all time high that we’ve raised over the past three years,” said NHS Treasurer and senior Samuel Friedman. “I thought Mr. Walkersville went very well. We topped the money total. That’s all that matters given the charity we are donating to. Everyone had a great time, crowd and participants included. I’m extremely glad that everyone could come out and participate.”

“I thought we had a great turn out. I’m so excited that we topped the last couple of years as far as proceeds go. This year we decided that the money should go to Walkersville’s branch of Relay for Life. This way, not only is Walkersville High School benefiting from it, but The American Cancer Society is as well,” said secretary and senior Elizabeth Hanner.

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life fundraiser is the worlds largest fundraiser to end the battle with cancer. It celebrates the lives lost to cancer while also raising money to stop it and find a cure. Walkersville High School’s team will compete again this year now with the help of the funds of Mr. Walkersville.

   A huge shout out goes to those involved with the production, those who helped put it on, and those who came to support. Don’t forget to also come out to support the Relay for Life team of you are a member of the National Honor Society!
