Relay For Life Discontinued

To The Editor:

The Relay For Life of Fulton County committee members have regretfully decided to discontinue our local event. This is due to lack of volunteers, lack of participation and a lack of American Cancer Society hands-on support. Our event is too small to have an ACS staff member come help and our committee is too small to do it alone. We just don’t have enough people who attend, and we feel that it is has run its course.

Our local businesses have been fantastic with sponsorships and donations and we are grateful. Thank you to all of the teams, participants, survivors and donors who have supported

Relay For Life over the years.

Although we will no longer hold a Relay at the track, we will continue to raise money for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life through drawings and raffles. We ask that you please continue to donate to ACS and Relay For Life however you can. ACS is working hard to fund lifesaving cancer research, patient support services, prevention and education information, and detection and treatment programs. For local ACS information please call 814- 695-9232 or 800-227-2345.
