Beat Cancer Olympics planned Wednesday

By LEANA CHOATE - lchoate@newsexaminer.com

The Connersville High School student council will be hosting a Beat Cancer in 4 Quarters Olympics at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the CHS gym.

There is no charge for spectators, but donations from the public will go towards a competition with Franklin County High School, to see which school can raise the most money for cancer research. The public is invited to attend.

The Olympics consists of five relays. Students form teams of eight and each team has its own creative name and matching team shirt. 

Games include the Hula Hoop Relay, Gown Relay, Scooter Ball, Toilet Paper Wrap and Ball Dribble.

The winning team will receive trophies and bragging rights. The Student Council will also sell t-shirts at the event  for $10. 

Amanda Combs, math teacher at CHS and co-sponsor of Student Council, has helped the council come up with the event along with her other two co-sponsors, Tonya Storck and Jennifer Schroeder. The CHS Student Council has approximately 40 students.

“Student Council does an Olympics games for Homecoming so when we needed to help raise money, we thought that we could do an Olympics for this as well since the students typically get pretty pumped about it and it does raise a little bit of money,” Combs said.
