Southfield Michigan - It's called the American Cancer Society's "Recess Relay". Students at Southfield's Thompson K-8 International Academy raised more than $700.00 by running relays during their recess. More than 500 students participated to raise money for cancer research. This activity is really important for these students who are at a school that focuses on creating global learners and encourages each and every student to participate in community service projects. This project was coordinated by Third Grade Teacher Camille Simpson. This is the first year Thompson participated and the turn out was so great, Mrs. Simpson says they're hoping to do it all again next year.
