What is Team Darden? Team Darden is a Cancer Relay for Life Team for King’s Fork Middle School. Relay for Life is a special walk that thousands of people in cities across the country take part in to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Have you ever known someone who has or has had cancer? Sadly, many of us have. Last year our Principal Mr. Darden was diagnosed with cancer. He lost his battle to cancer last May. Many of you who never met Mr. Darden might wonder, “Who was Mr. Darden?” That answer includes a man who wore many hats.
Mr. Darden was our Principal. He opened King’s Fork Middle School in 2001. Our school was his lifelong dream and he loved us!
Mr. Darden did many things at our school. He was a cook…
So, how did Team Darden start? When our school found out that Mr. Darden had cancer, we got together and started a Relay for Life Team to show him how much we cared and supported him through his tough time.
We sold T-shirts, bracelets, collected coins, and put together a cookbook full of over 235 of Mr. Darden’s recipes.
We posted signs outside of our school to let everyone know about the Relay for Life.
The most heartfelt event during the Relay is the Luminary lighting.
Your participation and support for Team Darden and the Suffolk Rockin’ Relay gives Hope to others who are battling cancer.
This year we have new shirts, new members, and YOU. Together, let’s make a difference while helping to find a cure for cancer. The best thing you can do at school is support Team Darden by purchasing a T- shirt, hoodie, bracelet or give a donation. Together we WILL make a difference!
