Relay for Life 2016 Recap
Although a few weather-related issues kept some of the crowd away at this year’s Relay for Life event in New Bern, the rainy weather didn’t dampen Excel’s enthusiasm! Staff members from Craven and Carteret county locations, spent the day at Grover C. Fields Middle School, leading children in arts & crafts activities to help “Paint the World Purple”, while walking laps around the track in support of Cancer victims and survivors. Excel families also took some time out to have a little fun participating in dance contests and a Zumbathon, as well as eating yummy food and meeting some famous “princesses” and superheroes!
Thanks to The Country Biscuit restaurant, all of our Excel families, and staff members, we are proud to say that Excel Learning Centers of Craven and Carteret Counties raised almost $1200 for the American Cancer Society through this year’s Relay for Life efforts.
We are already looking forward to what we can do to contribute to the fight against cancer next year!!
