Plainview Kids for Cures Winner
For the fourth year in a row, Plainview High School has won the Norfolk Area Relay for Life-Kids for Cures Competition. Norfolk Area Relay for Life Coordinators presented the traveling trophy Friday night during the Norfolk Area Relay for Life. Accepting the trophy were FCCLA/FFA/NTHS members Caiti Ziegenbein, Becca Wills, Tessa Steinkraus, Cheyenne Bolling, Melissa Pellatz, Jadin Doerr and adviser Ronita Jacobsen. While at the event, members walked the track, played games, and celebrated with cancer survivors.
The purpose of Kids for Cures is to get youth involved in community service and help them make a difference in the fight against cancer by raising money. Cancer affects every student in some way. Kids for Cures provides them a chance to help in a simple and fun way that does make a very big difference. It’s also a great leadership opportunity that increases school and community pride. Schools in Madison, Antelope, Pierce, and Stanton counties were invited to participate in the annual March competition as the Norfolk Area Relay For Life represents these four counties.
