Letter: Relay for Life, an appeal

Calling all Rappahannock County citizens — we need your help. The Relay for Life is underway. We are forming teams, planning fund-raisers and holding meetings. Somehow we have managed to come up short in people to assist with the event. There are still chairs on the committee to be filled, and we can always use more teams, but there aren’t people to take on any of these quite necessary tasks.

It is at this time that I ask you not only as a Relay for Life chair but as a fellow community member to look inside yourself and give selflessly your time to such a worthy cause. We all know someone who is affected by cancer. I know we are all busy with other things, but for such a small sacrifice of time, we are helping hundreds of people with necessary research and treatments, and I think it is a small price to pay.

If you are at all interested in helping in any way please feel free to contact me at 540-305-7363 or via email at track_brat79@hotmail.com. The meetings are currently being held 6:30 pm. the second Tuesday of every month at Washington Baptist Church. Hope to see you there.
