Twelve local high school students are making their mark on the fight against cancer. Ravens In The Hood, a relay race team at Ravenscroft School has raised more than 80-thousand dollars for the American Cancer Society this year and more and 400-thousand since 2009. Ravens In the Hood was the only high school group participating in Hood to Coast, a 199-mile relay race in Oregon, and they raised more money than any other team this year.
