The Mid Valley School District participated in CASUAL (Colon cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day. This awareness event, sponsored by the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, aims to decrease our region’s high rate of colorectal cancer (as high as 23 percent above the U.S. average in some areas). Megan O’Rourke was the team captain for the high school, Marie Gregg was the team captain for middle school and Robyn Buckshon was the team captain for the elementary school. Together, the district raised $1,480.
