Registration is open to join Relay For Life of District 88 Youth event

At District 88, giving back and helping others is a cornerstone of pride.

One of the district’s main fundraising events is the Relay For Life of District 88 Youth, which is part of Willowbrook’s Brook Olympics (a weeklong series of events and challenges created to enhance tradition and class spirit and pride at the school). Those events – along with “Go Pink” efforts in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month – raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

This year’s Relay For Life event will take place on April 27 at Willowbrook, and all District 88 students and community members are invited to attend. It will feature a variety of activities and games, and there also will be a luminaria to remember those who have lost their battle with cancer. Community members who raise at least $15 are invited to participate from 6 to 11 p.m. District 88 students who raise at least $115 can stay for the lock-in from 11 p.m. on April 27 to 6 a.m. on April 28.
