Lewiston students raise $2,213 for Relay for Life

Gaylord Herald Times

LEWISTON — Lewiston Elementary School students are working hard to make a difference in their community, supporting Otsego-Montmorency County Relay for Life through various fundraising efforts.

Students kicked-off on May 8 with change wars between classes, as well as sales from paper footprints on lockers and luminary bags.

May 15 began the “spirit week,” an opportunity to get students excited and to educate them about cancer.

“Teachers taught in class about Relay For Life and where the money goes,” said Laura Schrader, Lewiston Mini Relay team captain. “They talked about research and cancer.”

May 19 marked the kickoff to the Mini Relay with the first lap lead by local survivors. Students walked around the track and activities were scheduled throughout the day, including outside activities, face painting, ring toss, a parachute game, fortune teller, a craft where leaves were colored and a name of a survivor or a loved one lost was put on it to be hung on a Tree of Life in the hallway. During the closing ceremony, lights were turned off to show what a luminary ceremony is like at the Big Relay.

The event raised $1,263 in change wars and other donations, yielding a grand total of $2,213.

Each year, the class that raises the most money earn a pizza party from Schrader. This year, Ms. Bagnasco's kindergarten class won with $660 raised.

All funds will be turned in to the Otsego/Montmorency County Relay For Life.

“We are one of the teams registered there,” said Schrader who has been running the Mini Relay for the past eight years.

“When I am with these kids, they make all the hard work worth it,” she said. “I couldn't do this without my family, the staff at the school and the 15-plus volunteers who help. The year my husband was diagnosed I didn't think I would make it through the event, when I lost my mom to lung cancer last year, once again I didn't think I could continue. But it’s been the kids who continue to put a smile on my face. They understand what it is all about.”

With cancer being such a far-reaching disease, it would be difficult to find someone who isn’t somehow touched by it.

“They have lost loved ones, their parents, grandparents have cancer,” Schrader said. “They all have stories just like us. I am blessed to be able to be the Captain to the Lewiston School Mini Relay because they are the heroes here.
