The fifteen members of Parker School’s National Honor Society participated in Waimea’s Relay for Life on April 28. Led by their captain, Mariko Langevin, the team was well prepared. In anticipation of the event, the team raised $2268 for the American Cancer Society, surpassing its goal of $1000 and placing third amongst all the teams.
The group gathered in the park and celebrated the event for the duration of Saturday night. The night was full of energy as team members raced around the track, one member, Luke Potter, running a total of 26 miles.
After the team’s hard work on the field, the award for the most total laps went to Parker. Students flooded the field when it was time for Zumba, dancing for more than an hour. When it came time to pack up and leave the field, the Parker School team was not just tired but fulfilled as well.
