The 2014 Relay For Life of Southern Wood County Committee would like to thank the community for their support for this year's event. Over its 20 years, Relay For Life of Southern Wood County has raised over $2 million for Cancer Research and Outreach Programs. So far this year, over 304 registered participants from 31 teams have raised over $88,000.00 in the fight against cancer.
During our event, May 16-17, this community showered us with support as we raised over $20,000 during the event alone. From businesses, and individuals, donating items for the live, silent and basket auctions, to our sponsors for the survivors and caregivers reception and meat raffle and the people who create and participate on our Relay Teams. Our event is considered one of the best because of you.
Every day people hear the words, "You have cancer." It is the American Cancer Society's mission to provide research grants and programs for those battling cancer, so that someday we may find a cure and finish the fight against cancer.
However, our fight isn't over yet. We are still collecting donations, and our teams are still holding events. With your continued support, we will be able to surpass our goals and help even more people. But, first we want to say thank you to everyone who has helped us so far. We are truly blessed to be in a community like ours.
Again, thank you,
2014 Relay for Life of Southern Wood County Committee Chairs
