Two Brothers walk "Relay For Life" for Sick Schoolmate


Recently, Logan and Grant Gallagher, students at St. Benedict School, Holmdel, participated in The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The brothers, originally got involved walking in memory of a deceased family member, Miki Murphy, who eventually lost her battle with cancer.

This year, the boys walked as a celebration to their schoolmate, Sammi Whelan, who has been fighting this disease for over a year. The Gallagher’s wanted to do something that celebrated Sammi’s spirit and tremendous courage. Logan made badges with Sammi’s picture and had it signed by a celebrity to present to Sammi along with a tee shirt and some pictures from the day. Logan stated, "Anything that helps to keep a smile on her face in the days ahead is the very least that we can do."
