Things are getting personal at John C Webb Elementary. As students have already started gathering donations for the American Cancer Society, principal Bill Murray explains why this year’s relay for life hits closer to home as one Webb student has been diagnosed with cancer.
It’s kinda special, Murry tells Navasota News, knowing you’re raising money to fight a disease that one of your own is battling right now.
For the past several years the school has repeatedly collected at least $10,000, he continues, and some years pushed past twenty.
So, to further incentivize his kids, Murry has come up with a very special prize for this year’s top collectors, by letting the winners duck tape him to a wall.
And while kids are understandably excited to see their principal hanging on a wall like a trophy buck, he says you can also help.
Just donate at the school or to it’s students for this year’s relay for life, where your nickels, dimes or dollars will help fund research to save lives the world over, including one brave little local girl.
Donations will be accepted thru Friday (Dec 12th). For details, call 979-739-7991.
