The 2009 Kick-Off ACS Relay for Life of Yalobusha County events are important. They often symbolize the start of Relay Season within the community. All team captains and committee members are urged to attend. This event offers a great opportunity to celebrate those who have had cancer, remember loved ones lost, and remind or introduce participants to the ways they can fight back against cancer all year long.
There are several ways to be involved with the 2009 Relay:
—Fight Back Year-round by visiting RelayForLife.org.
—Be on the planning committee.
—Be a team captain or participate on a team.
—Walk in the Survivors/Caregivers Lap.
—Be a sponsor.
Each of us has our own special reason we Relay, and being given an opportunity to celebrate or remember that reason can make a difference in how much Relay touches our lives. The kickoff even brings us together for particular reasons—there are decisions to be made and information to share. Taking the time to stop and celebrate and remember our reason to Relay and our reason to fight back is important.
Join us at the 2009 American Cancer Relay Kickoff on January 13, at 5:30 p.m. in the Mechanics Bank Community Building. “We will have refreshments and door prizes. Come join the fight against cancer. See you at our first meeting of the New Year,” stated Glenda Gordon, Relay Chairperson.
