NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The fight against lymphoma is what one Chesapeake school is aiming for.
Grassfield High School held their 10th annual Laps for Lymphoma this past weekend. The community wide event brings together family, friends and survivors to raise money for lymphoma research.
The event started back in 2010 by Grassfield’s Student Council Association when the former principal Carolyn Bernard lost her husband, Cliff Bernard, to lymphoma.
This year, the event raised $26,000 bringing their total since starting in 2010 to $200,000.
