Owen County has an amazing group of giving and caring individuals who are always excited to help others when an opportunity arises. This is one of the many reason’s I’m so proud to live here. One of the many examples of how our community shines is through the success of our annual Relay for Life. The American Cancer Society is devoted to not only finding a cure for cancer but they are also focused on treatments, patient services, and awareness. Most of you know what a worthy cause our Relay for Life is and from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank all of you who currently support it.
Saturday Feb 12th starting at 5pm in the Owen County High School gymnasium the Boys Running Rebels basketball team will play South Oldham at home. This will be the Relay for Life Kickoff game! Part of the admission proceeds will go to Relay; we will also be offering T-Shirts and baskets for suggested donations to benefit Relay for Life. We want to encourage all survivors to attend and be recognized, and all Running Rebel fans to support our team and our communities fight for a cure at this event!
I am the team captain for the OC Relay 4 Life Community Team and I hold the recognition chair on the committee now. If you are not on a Relay for Life Team already, I would really like for you to join our community team and walk with us at this year’s 2011 relay on May 27th. I will need a $10 registration fee from you in order to be a team member. You can register online or I can get the paperwork to you:
Anyone can join this community team and walk with us on May 27th and help us raise money all year. There are many opportunities to raise money and I intend for my team to win the luminary sales competition! Please let me know if you are interested.
Please use this forum to share the progress of your Relay for Life team, and share with us the reason that you relay. If you have a survivor story or a cancer victim you’d like to honor please use this forum to share their story as well.
Thanks and God Bless.
