A-O holds Relay for Life Field Day By Jessica Williams, The Times-News 4/23/19 Reprinted with permission.
Altamahaw-Ossipee Elementary School held its annual Relay For Life field day in March. Throughout the day, students played games, had a dance party, walked laps, and decorated bags to donate to Relay for Life of Alamance County for the event May 17 at Holly Hill Mall. Cancer survivor Anna Allred shared her story, and speakers from the American Cancer Society, The Salvation Army and the Burlington Royals visited in the morning. Western Alamance High School students volunteered to assist and ran different stations. At the end of the day, the school was able to donate 2,400 cans of food to the Salvation Army’s food pantry.
