About 500 students participated in the Relay for Life of District 88 Youth event at Willowbrook High School on Saturday, March 7. The students, who attend the district’s two schools—Willowbrook and Addison Trail—raised funds for the American Cancer Society. As of early Saturday evening, the event had raised $80,000 and counting. The students who took part in the fundraiser—the 10th annual Relay for Life event at Willowbrook—spent the night in the field house, arriving at about 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, and staying until 6 a.m. on Sunday, March 8. The all-night event featured several activities, including yoga, basketball, volleyball, bags, ping-pong, Jenga, dodgeball and Zumba. The students who took part in the Relay for Life formed fundraising teams to raise money prior to the March 7 event. The largest fundraising team—Alpha Pi Omega—consists of over 130 Willowbrook seniors. A few members of the Alpha Pi Omega team (pictured left to right), which raised about $16,000 as of Saturday evening, are: (front row) Dominic Giannotti, Lizzy Florey and Ellie King; (second row) Nick Cappitelli, Camryn Witt and Payton Ceh; (third row) Tomas Zifcak, Donald Ward, Krenar Banushi, Ben Cavka, Jeffrey Sanchez and Erin Rosario.
