CLARK– Students at Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School in Clark participated in various PTA sponsored events in support of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, which is being held June 8 and 9 at Arthur L. Johnson High School. During the month of May, each student had the option to donate $1, color a purple cancer ribbon, and put it on display in the halls of the school to raise awareness for cancer. The students had two days to “Toss Your Coins for a Cure” in the Main Lobby of the school. The students also participated in a Hehnly “Mini Relay for Life”. Students walked with their buddy classes for 20 minutes around the school in honor of those who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease. About $1,000 will be donated to the Clark Relay for Life under the group name “Team Hehnly Kids Care”.
