A Cancer Awareness Night was held at RVMS last week. There was a quilt raffle, with the quilt being donated by Becky Andreasen, and won by Denise Lundin. There were different stations around the school: stations that checked your blood pressure and blood sugar, made smoothies, and chemo care packages. The care packages will be sent to Stormont Vail cancer center to help patients battling cancer. At each station you participated in, you got a stamp on a card. Once the card was filled up, you became eligible to win door prizes. Lily Cannon, Alex Cannon, and Shirley Hollis won prizes.
In the gym, the cheerleaders performed a song and dance routine with sticks and drums (exercise balls) for the crowd. Some people got to join in and learn the dance with them. Guest speakers Emma Carreno and Sheryl Nichols gave their story on battling cancer. All of the money that was raised will be given in the form of a check to Relay for Life.
"I thought the cheerleaders did a great job! The drum routine was really good. There was an incredible amount of work put into that night," said Ms. Williamson.
