LIME, or Leadership in Motion Everywhere, is an organization at Chelmsford High School dedicated to bettering the Chelmsford community. Among other smaller projects, LIME's biggest endeavor each year is putting on the Chelmsford 24 Hour Relay.
This past year's relay was a huge success, attracting over 70 teams and more than 700 participants. Each team consists of 10 members, one of which must be walking or running around the McCarthy track during the entire duration of the 24 hours. LIME receives plenty of support from local organizations such as the Police Department, Ambulance Crews and Chelmsford TeleMedia.
The event is one massive fundraiser for local organizations, and LIME will be presenting this year's selected organizations with donations on February 4th in the Career Center at Chelmsford High School. At the presentation, members of LIME will present checks to the Chelmsford Police and Fire Departments, the Chelmsford Senior Center, the Chelmsford Food Pantry, the CHS Alumni Association, the Lowell Wish Project, the Chelmsford Coalition to Livesmart, and others.
LIME receives help from the community to plan and execute each year's relay and the money raised goes right back into the community.
