Laker Anchor of Hope

Founding of The Laker Anchor of Hope Team Relay for Life Team

In October 2010, Lakers lost one of its wonderful staff members – Michelle Chiotti – to ovarian cancer. Michelle, a 2001 Laker graduate, battled this cancer for two years. During that time, Laker students made some beautiful teal cancer ribbons for her. Students and staff talked a lot about helping others and how students can make a difference. The Relay For Life was part of that discussion.

After Michelle passed away, staff members knew they wanted to do something in her honor, and they started a Laker Relay For Life team.

Anchor of Hope

With the administration’s support, the team “Laker Anchor of Hope” was created.

The team has sold many feet, stars, luminaria bags, T-shirts, carnations and has held bake sales. Staff, students and administration have come and walked at Relay For Life and they have met more amazing survivors and family members who have struggled with this dreadful disease.

As a group, the Laker Anchor of Hope has raised more than $30,000 since forming in 2011.

The team is fully committed to the fight against cancer. Lakers is proud to have its students involved in events that are related to such a worthy cause.

Laker Chain Reaction

Laker High School Michigan

Laker Chain Reaction came about through Rachel’s Challenge, a national non-profit organization dedicated to creating safe, connected school environments where learning and teaching are maximized. Based on the life and writing of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the Columbine tragedy in 1999, Rachel’s Challenge provides a continual improvement process for schools designed to awaken the learner in every child. We motivate and equip students to start and sustain a chain reaction of kindness and compassion that transforms schools and communities.
