On Sunday May 6, 2018, GHS Interact Club raised $3795, including $150 in cash donations during an event fully planned and executed by the students. The Relay for Life event began at 7AM and continued non-stop until 7PM.  During the day, there were always people in motion walking or running the track; playing tennis, cornhole, volley ball, spike ball, wiffle ball, dancing; anything to stay in motion. Food was available all day to fuel the participants, some of which was provided by local businesses like Mr Bagel, GHOP and Amatos.

Over the course of the day, more than 70 students and adults participated at various times. Neile Nelson, Interact Adviser, was there participating with her children.  By about 2PM, she herself had logged nearly 20 miles! Parents of several students participated in the activities and made sure everyone stayed hydrated and well fed.
To end the evening, the GHS Interact Club lined the entire track with lit white luminary bags, all personally decorated with members' friends and family names who had cancer. Interact members then dispersed around the track to cheer and clap, while the 10 Survivors who attended completed the Survivor Lap with their family and caregivers.

Once that Survivor lap finished, the entire club walked one more lap with the survivors and their families to conclude the evening. It was an emotional moment that left everyone there feeling very, very grateful!
