Sultan High students donated $181.78 to the American Cancer Society raised through “Pie for a Cure.”
Four Sultan High School teachers volunteered to get a pie in the face if they raised the most money for the Relay for Life fundraiser organized by the cheer team May 20-23.
Teachers Cory Kellogg and Ben Murphy raised the most money. Both teachers received a pie in the face for their fundraising efforts.
The Sultan High Cheer Team also participated in the Sky Valley Relay for Life event on June 1 and 2.
Staying up all night and walking the Monroe High School track for the American Cancer Society turned out to be a worthwhile endeavor for the Sultan High Cheer team. Coach Catherine Van-Pelt said, “Being part of Relay for Life helped the cheer team bond, spread awareness for the fight against cancer, and positively represented Sultan High School – all while raising over $500 towards finding a cure for cancer.”
Cheerleader Felicia Anderson donated 12 inches of her red hair to “Locks of Love.” The team took second place in lip sync competition, was recognized as the top new spirit team, and took 1st place in the Mr. Relay contest that raised $330.75.
The Relay for Life team included Felicia Anderson, Monica Chavez, Annalisia Flores, Melissa Garcia, Daniela Ortega, Sara Salazar, Ruby Zamora, Catherine Van-Pelt, Jessica Wiediger, Wendy Paige, Angela Hoffman, Zoe Paige, and Christina, Shane and Jonathan Van Pelt.
