Throughout the week, Addison Trail’s National Honor Society and Key Club raised money for Relay For Life. Donations made helped each class in its quest to win the school trophy, and the school will donate $1,000 to Relay For Life. On March 13, students were able to take photos in the large Relay For Life chair (see photos below).
