Students at Williams Township School did laps for Team Leah Thursday morning, engaging in a Beta Club community project to benefit Leah Starnes, an 8-year-old from the Pireway Community who was diagnosed in October with leukemia.
The daughter of Paul and Kerry Starnes, Leah is a student at Guideway Elementary. She has spent much of the past several months receiving treatments at UNC Children’s Hospital in Chapel Hill.
