Relay For Life Returns to Southlake

Carroll ISD and the Southlake community are getting ready to Relay For Life. This spring marks the fourth year the annual American Cancer Society fundraiser has come to Southlake. Relay For Life Southlake 2013 will be Friday, May 3 at Carroll High School located at 800 N. White Chapel.

Carroll ISD is a co-sponsor of the event as part of the district’s year-end Rachel’s Challenge celebration. Rachel’s Challenge is a non-profit organization that aims to inspire young people to make positive changes in their community. Carroll ISD uses Rachel’s Challenge curriculum and program in all campuses. Click here to learn more about Rachel’s Challenge.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled, overnight event that offers everyone an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Each year, thousands of participants including Carroll ISD faculty and staff take to the track at Carroll High School for Relay. In honor of those who battle cancer 24-hours a day, team members typically take turns walking the track throughout the night for 12 hours. For those not walking, there is around-the-clock activities and fun to keep everyone busy. From entertainment, food and games to ceremonies and stories of inspiration, there is something for everyone at Relay For Life Southlake. During Relay, there will be no public parking at Carroll High School or Durham Intermediate School campuses. A shuttle service will be provided for all Relay participants. Click here for complete details.

Over the years, Relay For Life Southlake has raised hundreds of  thousands of dollars in donations to the American Cancer Society. Nearly 500 people have already signed up to participate, raising over $30,000 in donations.

Dragons Go Red Returns to CISD

Once again, the Carroll ISD will promote good heart health in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s annual Go Red campaign.

For the past two years, Carroll has provided unique “Dragons Go Red” t-shirts for staff and students to purchase. A portion of the purchase price is donated to the American Heart Association. This year, t-shirts will be available at the new Carroll ISD Administration Center located at 2400 N. Carroll Avenue in the Communications and Marketing Department. The t-shirts are the 2012 design and will be sold for a $7 donation. Adult and child sizes are varied, this limited stock will be on a first come, first served basis. With any “Dragons Go Red” t-shirt, faculty and staff can wear jeans on Wednesdays during the month of February. Staff members who wear a previous year’s shirt are encouraged to make a donation to the AHA through their campus nurse. Staff at Carroll ISD Administration building can leave their donation in a marked box at the front desk.

In addition to t-shirt sales, Carroll ISD schools are also conducting fundraisers for the AHA. Old Union, Rockenbaugh Elementary and Johnson Elementary schools will each host a “Jump Rope for Heart” event. See campus calendars for dates.
