Relay For Life Team Raises Funds For Local Event
04/07/2009

The 16th Annual Relay for Life kicks off at 7 p.m. May 29 at Light Park in Liberal.

One team already working hard to raise money for the event is the “Scrub Away Cancer” team made up of employees from Southwest Medical Center. Members include: Denise Hageman, Michele Gillespie, Kelly Denton, Denise Hartle, Elizabeth Denoyer, Nadine Mein, Brenda Smith, Laurie Hurle, Mary Hiebert, McKenzie Wright and Terra Kitch.

The “Scrub Away Cancer Team” recently hosted one of their fundraisers at the local healthcare facility. They sold breakfast burritos, chili and a number of baked goods along with offering several items in a silent auction. When it was over, the team had raised $1,200 for their efforts.

And they aren’t stopping there.

They will be selling chances for a “Small gifts for life pampering package” up until the date of the Relay. Tickets are available for a $5.00 donation for one or six tickets for a $20.00 donation. The package includes a 30-minute massage, haircut and style, spray on tan, eyebrow wax, meal for two and gift certificates from Spa-Lon by Girlfriends, Salty Dog Restaurant and Rafter J. Liquor Store.

Tickets are available from any team member and the winner need not be present to win.

Other events for the Relay include a special ceremony honoring cancer survivors. The ceremony is at the beginning of the event and will kick off the walk itself as the survivors take their very own “Survivor’s Lap” around the course. The luminaries will mark the track and remind participants why they are there as they glow throughout the night as if showing the way to a cure.

There will also be entertainment throughout the event, as each team maintains at least one member on the track throughout the event until it ends at 7 a.m., May 30.
