Oak Lawn Community High School will host its Relay for Life event for the 12th year in a row, according to a press release from the school.
This year’s Relay for Life is to take place March 8, earlier than usual. The event begins at 4 p.m.
Per tradition, the faculty, staff and students planned to “paint the gym purple” by wearing purple T-shirts during the boys basketball games against Reavis High School last week.
The proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society.
Relay for Life raises money for cancer research.
