Benjamin Logan Raider Relay Raises Over $7,900 for Cancer Society


The Benjamin Logan High School (BLHS) proudly announces the success of its annual Raider Relay event, which raised over $7,900 in support of the Logan County Cancer Society (LCCS).

Held on Wednesday, May 8, the event brought together students, staff, and community members for a day of fun-filled activities and fundraising efforts.

The highlight of the day was the participation of Logan County residents battling cancer and cancer survivors, who kicked off the event with a celebratory lap around the field, honoring their courage and resilience in the face of adversity.

Throughout the day, attendees engaged in various activities, including cornhole, volleyball, face painting, and more.

Students showcased their talents in tournaments and a talent show, with one memorable moment involving freshman Bre Sweeney pie-ing math teacher Jamie Hughes in the face as part of a fundraising activity.

“We are thrilled by the overwhelming support shown by the BLHS community for this year’s Raider Relay,” said Tammy Gump, Chief Operating Officer of the LCCS. “The generosity displayed will make a meaningful difference in the lives of Logan County residents affected by cancer.”

The funds raised during the event will provide vital assistance to individuals and families facing cancer-related diagnoses in Logan County.

In 2023, the LCCS distributed nearly $257,000 to 475 individuals, covering medical supplies, medications, travel expenses, and other essential needs.

“We are proud to contribute to such a worthy cause and make a positive impact on our community,” said Kelly Gibson, NHS Advisor at Benjamin Logan High School. “The success of this year’s Raider Relay is a testament to the compassion and generosity of our students, staff, and families.”
