On Saturday, June 17th Kearney students participated in the Relay for Life of Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst and Dyker Heights. Relay for Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Team members take turns walking throughout the event to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer.
Bishop Kearney’s team, Hope for Change, under the direction of Maria Giarracca, has been participating for over 10 years and this year raised over $4,000. Mrs. Giarracca said, “Unfortunately everyone has a link to someone who has been touched by this disease and the students put all their best efforts into fundraising in the HOPE that research will CHANGE the face of this disease."
