LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER
Last year Horizon Honors was proud to join American Cancer Society and host our first-ever Relay For Life.  This school year, we hope to build on last year’s success, and show our commitment to our community by fighting back against cancer. 

​Join us in this fight Friday, March 3rd from 5 pm-midnight.  Help us remember those we have lost to the disease, raise funds to aid cancer research and those who are diagnosed, and celebrate those who have emerged victorious in their battle with cancer.

WHAT HAPPENS AT RELAY FOR LIFE?  
Relay For Life is a community event where we are able to come together and recognize how cancer has touched each of our lives.  Participants form teams or register individually to show our committed efforts to fighting back against cancer.  Each participant fundraises through an online fundraising page, with all the proceeds going to American Cancer Society.
 
Throughout the event, each team needs to have a representative walking the track, symbolizing the cancer does not stop and neither will we.  Some of the highlights of the event include a lap for survivors and caregivers, a luminaria ceremony, where we recognize those we have lost or why we are walking to help the  fundraising efforts, live music, entertainment, and games that will allow us to continue to bond as a community.

Participants who are younger than high school will be invited to join in the fun until 9 p.m. After 9 p.m. those who are in high school or older and have raised at least $25 will be able to stay at the event until midnight.

 
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
  1. Join or start a team and fundraise through the online fundraising page.  Registration is simple at relayforlife.org/horizonhonorsaz.  If you raise at least $100 you will earn a fantastic Relay For Life t-shirt to commemorate your efforts and fighting back against cancer.
  2. Serve as a chaperone for a student team.  Serving as a chaperone does not stop you from joining another team, but does give a little extra responsibility to your role that night as a go to person for the students you are chaperoning.  Every student team needs a chaperone who is at least 21 years of age.
  3. Give to the cause.  Support a team or individual through giving at a fundraising page, which can be accessed at relayforlife.org/horizonhonorsaz.  If you would rather donate through goods, we are in need of the following items, which can be dropped off in the front office with Mrs. Shaheen:
    1. White paper lunch bags for luminarias
    2. Gift cards to Fry’s, Amazon, or Costco
TAKE ACTION AND MAKE AN IMPACT!
Respectfully,
The Horizon Honors High School Student Council

CO-ED CROSS COUNTRY
Horizon Honors’ Co-Ed Cross Country team raced hard to their last finish line of the season with the girls clinching the 3rd place title out of 10 schools.  The girls crushed this 2.12 mile course nailing a third place victory for the team.  Lia Rao (13th, 15:37) Delaney Wolf (20th, 16:00), and Sydney Wolf (29th, 16:42) finished the season in stellar form placing in the top 30 out of 95 runners.

The boys pushed themselves to the limit pacing beautifully to the end.  Out of 120 runners, Justin Boyd crossed the finish line 21st with a 14:16 time.  His fellow teammates raced their personal best:  Luke Lemme (15:43), Jon Briones (16:00), Logan Whitehead (17:47) and Noah Dinardo (18:41).

LOOKING FOR CANCER SURVIVORS AND CAREGIVERS
Horizon Honors will be hosting our first ever Relay For Life Event on Friday, March 3, 2017. Relay For Life is a way for our whole Horizon Honors community to come together to bring hope to cancer survivors and their loved ones, honor cancer victims who have passed, and raise money to fight the disease.  Our school has been affected by this diseases numerous times, so it hits right at home. That is why we are eager to make this event the best it can be. In order for that to happen, we need cancer survivors to participate in the Survivor’s Lap at the event and caregivers for loved ones who have battled or are currently battling cancer to take their lap too! To sign up as an individual or to join a team, go to www.relayforlife.org/horizonhonorsaz.
If you or someone you know has or has had cancer, and would like to join us on this evening of hope, please contact our People Lead, Burke Wood at burke.wood@student.horizonclc.org. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!
