Won't you join us this year and be a part of Relay?
It's not just an opportunity to celebrate, remember, and fight back - your involvement will help the American Cancer Society work toward a mission of eliminating cancer as a major health issue and will support much-needed services in your community. Thanks in part to the donations from Relay For Life and other events, the Society is saving lives, helping those touched by cancer, and empowering people to fight this disease all over the world.
Last year Relay For Life raised over $144,000 in Claiborne County. The 2008 Relay For Life is set for Aug. 22.
The 2008 Claiborne County Relay For Life Kickoff Ceremony will be held Thursday, Jan. 31, 6 p.m. at Haymaker Farms. Teams will raise money throughout the year until the Relay at Harrogate City Park. Teams also compete for recognitions such as the Spirit Award, Most Money raised by a Business, Church of School, and a Team Captain's Award.
If you want to be part of the fight against cancer, make plans to join us at the 2008 kickoff celebration.
