As part of the annual I Love to Read Week reading initiative, this year, in honor of those individuals in our local school system and community who are currently battling cancer, Hickman County High School is holding a building-wide Read-a-thon to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life program. Each HCHS student will have the opportunity to participate in this worthy cause.
Beginning Friday, February 14, HCHS students will begin asking for pledges from friends, family, and community members. Pledges will be based on the number of minutes students accumulate while reading during I Love to Read Week (February 24th-28th at the high school). Pledges will consist of committing to donate a few cents per minute read, and donors may set the max amount they would like to contribute.
Pledges are due for collection during the first week of March. Let’s work together to fight this disease and support reading at the same time!
