Although there’s still a little more money to be turned in and counted, it’s already a 20% increase over the 2009 total – an awesome year of fund raising that started before the 2009 holidays, and went on right up until the event on May 22-23.
But as long as help is needed for cancer assistance and research, the fight goes on, and Relay members will soon be gearing up for the 2011 effort. Some of the committee members may be retiring this year, so the NCRFL is calling out for new people interested in assisting with the annual American Cancer Society event.
The organizational meeting for the 2011 Relay is on November 11, 7 p.m., at the Community State Bank in Albion. That may seem far in the future, but it’ll arrive in no time, so everyone is urged to contact Relay members and get involved.
At the 2010 wrap-up meeting, Relay members gave out thanks to area police officers who volunteered to keep the event safe, to the other volunteers who helped out, and especially to everyone in Noble County who showed their support in so many different ways.
Anyone interested in participating is asked to contact NCRL committee chairman Ed Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Team recruitment chairperson Stacey Lang can be reached at (260) 894-1418, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
