An important component of the annual Relay for Life event are the Relay Recess/Field Day activities held for elementary and middle school students which help drive home the message that it's never too soon to adopt healthy habits in an effort improve overall health and prevent cancer. The activities and educational materials provided through the Relay Recess/Field Day program teach children and their families how to make healthy choices about nutrition, physical activity, sun safety, and tobacco prevention. 
 
In addition to achieving its educational goals, the 2017 Relay for Life was also a financial success raising $38,477. This includes $4,913 raised by G.C. Hartman students and staff. Mrs. Lauren Day, SCA teacher and one of the Relay's organizers, congratulated the school on their efforts exclaiming, "G.C. Hartman, you rocked Relay Recess!!  Your artwork was stupendous and your spirit contagious!" Mrs. Day also thanked all students and staff for their support and for making a difference in the fight against cancer.
