And on Thursday, Eyewitness News got to see some of the team members in action.
There was some dancing, limbo, and even The Macarena on Thursday afternoon in the Sauquoit Valley Middle School gymnasium.
And the best part, it was all for a good cause.
"We're doing a mini relay, we're walking, we're doing dedication laps and face painting to honor those who have passed or are living with cancer," said 5th grader Savannah Robinson.
Around 40 fifth graders filled the gym Thursday for their very own "Relay for Life."
The actual Relay for Life in Sauquoit is June 9th, but this year the fifth graders are new to the middle school so Relay captain, Tammy Purrington decided to have a smaller version of the event.
Even though the 5th graders aren't participating in the actual June 9th event with the 6th through 8th graders, the preparation is all the same.
"They actually started raising money when our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders did. We're all a part of the same team, we just have a seperate small relay. They've been raising money since March. They've been doing the same as our other groups," said Purrington.
Like the older students, the 5th graders also know exactly why they are walking.
Whether it be for family members, friends, or just to help the community.
And what would a Relay for Life be without a little life lesson along the way.
"They're learning how to give, they're learning to do something for somebody else and not to get anything in return except for having a great time," said Purrington.
