Light the Night at Bay High School

Bay High's traditional homecoming bonfire took on a new meaning Thursday, Oct. 6, as students dedicated the evening to hosting their own Light the Night walk to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They ultimately donated $11,100 dollars to fight the blood cancers and to support Bay Village Schools students suffering from them.

More the 1,200 luminaria lined the Bay High stadium track and walkway to the school. A brief ceremony at the stadium was led by Principal Jason Martin and Bay High students. They honored Jane and Daniel from Bay High School, Luke from Normandy, and Molly from Westerly as heroes. The football game-sized crowd rose to their feet with both tears and cheers. The crowd then made their way down the softly-lighted walkway to the homecoming bonfire.

The highly successful fundraiser showed Bay High students' love for their classmates and others fighting cancer, and it reinforced the evening's theme of "You Never Fight Alone."
