Numerous events took place Monday at Two Harbors High School during its annual “Mini-Relay for Life.”
Students at the school helped raise funds for the American Cancer Society through events such as a “penny war.” Each penny is worth one point and silver coins or bills deduct points (a dime would deduct 10 points).
The strategy is to drop pennies in your own bucket and silver and bills in other buckets. There was also a bake sale during lunch and a dodge ball tournament in the evening.
Lisa Mitlyng Knight, a breast cancer survivor, talked with students in the auditorium about her experience with cancer. The auditorium was filled with illuminated bags to remember those who have been lost to cancer.
Students could take laps around the auditorium during the day as part of the relay. The high school jazz band also performed during an opening ceremony. The district is still counting how much money was raised.
