On April 26, 2019, members of the Linganore basketball program competed against staff members in a students vs staff basketball game. The event was held during PREP. There was a donation of $2 to enter, and proceeds were donated to the Relay for Life.

The game was planned by Class of 2019 member Emily Wolfe. After losing her father to cancer in 2016, Wolfe has held events and fundraisers to raise money for cancer, primarily focusing on the Relay for Life.

“I wanted an event that everyone could enjoy, and I think it went over well because there was a lot of preparation by both Mr. Brown and I, as well as the rest of the SGA,” said Wolfe.

Through this event alone Wolfe raised $400, putting the Linganore Relay for Life team at about $3,500 of the $5,000 goal.

Class of 2019 member Christian Nolan was a member of the student team for the event. “I wanted to raise awareness and play for the cause, as well as have one more game of basketball as it’s my last year in high school,” said Nolan.

Class of 2021 member Morgan Miller is currently in first place with $550 raised, followed by Ms. Paula Larson, Kenleigh Smith, and Shay Arneson. All students raising money are still accepting donations. The Relay for Life is scheduled for May 10th, 2019, at the Banner School in Frederick, and will begin at 7 p.m.
