October 4, 2012:
Pfeiffer-Burleigh Elementary School began the program today called "Recess Relay".
The school is the first in ErieCounty to take part.
Recess Relay is a branch of the American Cancer Society's "Relay for Life".
The students will spend the next few months not only getting more exercise but also learning about cancer, prevention and the importance of community service.
This is a year long program.
Today was the first of many recess relay races to come.
The program ends with a big celebration at the end of the school year.
