South Hill’s Relay for Life May 15

SoVaNow.com / April 19, 2010
Relay for Life of South Hill 2010 is turning 16, and the Relay Committee has set this year’s theme, “Sweet 16, Blowing out Candles for a Cure = More Birthdays.” The Relay, set for May 15 at Centennial Park in South Hill, will be a little different this year as it’ll run from noon-midnight.

Relay will feature the survivor’s reception and lap, music, food, games for the children, and fun and fellowship as participants raise funds to fight cancer. Relay co-chairs are Carolyn Carter and Chrystal Harris, and honorary chairperson is Chalon Carter, who is a 16-year cancer survivor. Music will be provided throughout the day by the Park View Jazz Band, The BJ’s Gospel Group, New Sanctuary, Superstition and other entertainers.

The Relay for Life committee is looking cancer survivors to sign up for the first lap of this year’s event. Recruitment also is underway for new teams, with 15 teams signed up so far. Already 98 participants have raised $7,217.00 for the cause. The 2010 fundraising goal is $84,000. The Relay committee encourages more people to sign up to join the fight against this disease, and especially would like to see more men register for the 100 Man Walk and the children’s lap (16 and under) during the festivities.

By participating in this American Cancer Society Relay for Life event, you honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to the lives lost to the disease, and raise money to help fight it.

Much more than a walk around a track, Relay is a time to celebrate those who have battled cancer, remember those lost and get inspired to fight back. Those who have shared the same experience find common ground, hope and healing at Relay. By participating, you have the power to continue the American Cancer Society’s progress toward a future where cancer doesn’t take the lives of our friends and family.

Make plans to be a part of it all on May 15, 2010 and celebrate “1 World of Hope” and imagine a world with more birthdays
