The Rushford-Peterson High School WE group sponsored Cancer Awareness Week February 12-16. 

There were many events involved for all ages including buying t-shirts, musical chairs basketball, walking tacos and big cookies sold at games, along with themed Silent Auction baskets that were donated by the staff at the school. 

The elementary was involved in "Lend a Hand" again this year, to make donations where they would lend a hand to a neighbor, grandparent, parent, etc. and received a $1 donation to the cause.  

Buckets were passed at the games to collect donations, with proceeds donated to Relay for Life. 

The WE group presented a check to Relay for Life on April 17 in the amount of $7,207.94. The money goes to American Cancer Society. The donations from staff, businesses, and community members are greatly appreciated. 

Members of the WE group include Olivia Hoff, Anna Kjos, Victoria Kjome, Hannah Ledebuhr, Nicole Blagsvedt, Ben Ansell, Matthew Strapp, Jordan McNamer, Michael Ekern, Abby Malone, Chloe Bunke, Faith Eide, Kaitlyn Bieberdorf, Lauren Lawston, Matt Nelson, and Megan Oian.
