The Yorktown Elementary School and Yorktown Junior High School sponsored a walk against cancer for the second year at the Wildcat Stadium, Oct. 31.
A little over 400 students, pre-K through eighth grade, with teachers and some members of the community participated.
During the walk, principal Sylvia Hernandez read 87 names of those who died of cancer. They were family members, friends and staff of the community. Hernandez then read 61 names of those who have survived cancer.
Five cancer survivors were there and were asked to stand on the field so that they may be honored. They were Omara Williams, Lana Brysch, Georgia Guzy, Robin Day, and Misty Corpus.
