“The Relay for Life event brings people together to achieve a common goal, to ‘be bigger than cancer.’ At St. Theresa’s High School, we brought together a community of students, staff, volunteers, and survivors to fundraise, foster awareness, and support this worthy cause. We outdid ourselves, raising over double our initial fundraising goal. I’m so proud of our school and our generous community supporters,” said Audrey, student co-chair.
