The American Cancer Society recently presented the Northshore School District with a plaque honoring the district as a Gold Level Sponsor for Relay For Life of Northshore.
Each spring, Relay For Life of Northshore is held at Skyview Junior High in Bothell. The event has grown through the years and has broken fund-raising records the past two years. This year's event had 750 registered participants, more than 600 of which were Northshore School District students.
Each junior high and each high school were represented with teams of students raising money for cancer research and patient support. Six teams from Leota Junior High raised more than $50,000 on their own. This year's event raised more than $175,000.
