TeamHenderson Relay for Life Seeks Donations to Help Fight for a Cancer Cure



The York County Relay for Life event is fast approaching on Saturday, June 13, at the York County fairgrounds in York. A local team – TeamHenderson – is doing their best to raise money to help the American Cancer Society raise awareness, find cures and improve treatment of the disease.

A personal campaign for funds will be done in Henderson. Monetary donations of any amount are welcome! At the relay event white luminaries will encircle the track. A donation of $10 may be made to sponsor a luminary in memory of a loved one who has lost their battle to cancer or in honor of a cancer survivor. Local team members are: Barb, Olivia and Tierney Casper, Sharon Chvatal, Kathryn Goertzen, and Melissa Goertzen.  These team members may be soliciting funds through the mail, door-to-door or by phone call. Anyone who is interested in making a donation is welcome to contact a team member OR drop it off at Mainstay Communications during office hours.

The Relay for Life Event will take place on Saturday, June 13, at the York Fairgrounds. The official start time is 6:00 p.m. and the evening will wrap up at midnight.

TeamHenderson will have a ‘campsite’ set up and anyone who attends is welcome to bring a chair and join the team for the evening. Food will be available to purchase from the various participating teams in attendance. TeamHenderson will be selling homemade cinnamon rolls. Cancer survivors will be given tokens to be used to get complimentary food at the various team tents. In addition to the survivors walk, a memorial slide show is shown at dusk. The entire Relay evening is a public event. Everyone who is interested is welcome to attend.
