The rain put bit of a damper on the day of June 14th at the 2008 Tazewell Relay for Life Event, but not on the compassion and fellowship for those who spent the day together. Numerous supporters, survivors, friends and family participated in many games, special event walks, and ceremonies. Everyone gathered to celebrate the lives of people who had battled cancer and remembered their love ones lost to the disease. The Relay for Life teams represent the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported and that one day cancer will be eliminated. The Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office Because We Care Team relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease. Special thanks to all who donated, supported and participated during or 2008 fund raising drive. Together the combined efforts of all the Tazewell County Region Relay for Life Teams raised over $67,000.
There is no finish line until we find a cure. Please continue to watch for Relay For Life American Cancer Society Events. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Thank You. For more information and pictures of our events go the [email protected].
