Most everyone is gearing up for the Nelson Relay For Life in May, but North Branch School held a pre Mini Relay For Life within the past week.

Groups of students, staff, and parents walked throughout the school day in support of the Nelson Relay for Life. A brief opening ceremony at 9:00 AM began the day with remarks by Amy Kirchner, Community Manager of the South Atlantic Division of the American Cancer Society.

Families made prayer flags with a wish for or a memory of someone affected by cancer.
