Oak Lawn Community High School will host its Relay for Life for the 12th year in a row!  Relay for Life is an organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research.  This year’s Relay for Life will take place earlier than usual on Saturday, March 8, 2014.  Per Relay tradition, the faculty, staff, and students will paint the gym purple by wearing purple T-shirts during the boys’ basketball games against Reavis High School on February 7, 2014, against the Reavis Rams. The sophomore game begins at 5:00 p.m. followed by the varsity game at 7:00 p.m.

According to TJ Zuzga, Relay for Life Sponsor, “The Paint the Gym Purple events have generated a lot of attention during the past few years and the committee is looking forward to another successful evening.  Reavis High School is also promoting the event with their students and fans.  The night promises to be well attended and should reinforce the athletic rivalry between the two schools.  The proceeds from the event benefit the American Cancer Society.”

Fans are encouraged to drape themselves in purple attire. A limited number of t-shirts will be on sale prior to the game.  Students can purchase t-shirts in the student cafeteria during the week of the event.
