TARBORO — Why are Tarboro Printing, Piggly Wiggly and KCST donating more than $4,900 in money and services to sponsor the American Cancer Society Relay For Life on May 4 and 5 2012?

Each of our businesses has felt the agonizing effects of cancer. We have lost colleagues, employees and customers to the disease. We have watched as our loved ones and coworkers have cared for a family member or business partner whose life has been wrenched apart after a cancer diagnosis. We are passionate about Relay For Life as it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

Sponsoring Relay For Life is one way our companies help make a difference in the fight against cancer. Our support enables the American Cancer Society to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and fighting back. Many other local businesses share our dedication to the cause and get involved by forming teams and providing generous donations for the overnight event at Tarboro High School football field.

Relay For Life reminds us how effective Edgecombe County can be when we unite behind a common goal. And, we know we aren't in this alone as our efforts are multiplied many times by hundreds of volunteer hours and extraordinary fund raising efforts put forth by other businesses and individuals.

To date, more than thirty-one local businesses and organizations have registered a team for the Relay For Life. Is your business among them? If not, there is still time to recruit a team, raise contributions and join us for this once-a-year, all-out community effort against cancer. Make the Relay For Life part of your business. Call Jane Harper (252-8723-8277) or visit RelayForLife.org to register or learn more.
