SANTA MARIA — Santa Maria High School ASB students joined the fight against cancer by participating in the Day of Hope campaign for the fifth year in a row.

The students jump-started their efforts by pre-selling Santa Maria Times newspapers to staff. Then, on the day of the event, the students spent the morning waving signs and newspapers, encouraging drivers to pull over and buy one. After the day was over, they collected a grand total of $598 dollars.

“I was so excited,’’ said junior Lizeth Guzman. “ I sold to all my teachers and helped collect money from students all day. I’m glad that I had the opportunity to help a hospital that helps people with cancer.’’

“It felt really cool participating in this event because I knew that every dollar I collected was going to help people with cancer,’’ said Estefania Flores, a junior.

Saint Activity Director Adrian Salazar described his students as outstanding “role models”.

“It is always exciting to see students in Leadership take the next step and involve themselves in the community,’’ Salazar added. “Leaders are selfless, and, these students had the opportunity to practice that today and that makes me feel proud of them.’’

The event involved Marian Regional Medical Center, Mission Hope Cancer Center and numerous volunteers throughout the Central Coast.
