In It to Win Over Cancer

Editor, News-Register: Thanks to all the people who participated in RELAY FOR LIFE again this year. If you donated to the raffle, bought a bottle of water or a Taco in a Bag, lighted a luminaria or came to walk, you are part of the reason for the success of this year’s event. We cannot thank our sponsors and supporters enough. The heavens opened, and with the rain came lightning and thunder. Our spirit didn’t waiver.

Although important, our mission has always been more than just the fundraising. Our mission includes being there for the survivors and for the families of all those touched by the cancer. Quick decisions were made, and with the safety of all in mind, we moved to the shelter of the rink and continued.

Cancer doesn’t take weather breaks, so we don’t either.

Thank you for sticking with us. Although we do have a great time at RELAY, it isn’t all about the one night; it’s about the fight. We are in it to win it!

See you next year!
