Although the American Cancer Society Relay for Life Event will not be taking place in the town of Henderson, everyone can make contributions to this worthy cause!

A group of ten individuals make up the Henderson Team and will be canvassing Henderson for contributions until the week of the event.

Members of the local team include: Co-chairs – Kim Epp (366-6953) and Kathryn Goertzen (723-4931), Amy(Friesen) Doremus, Vernelle Epp, Arlyce Friesen, Myron Friesen, Melissa Goertzen, Marilyn Kroeker, Nancy Sowl and Sue Sullivan.  Each of these members will be assigned a section of the town or rural area to solicit donations.  Each of these dedicated team members has been touched by cancer in a significant way – either being a survivor themselves or having been a caregiver to someone who has had cancer.  Additional team members are welcome and anyone interested in joining the effort should contact either of the co-chairs.

Sue Sullivan, oncology coordinator for the Henderson Health Care Services, will order ‘survivor t-shirts’ for relay participants.  All cancer survivors, including newly diagnosed or those currently in treatment, may contact Sue at HHCS to order their shirt.

The York County Relay will be taking place at the York County Fairgrounds on June 11 and 12 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. for more information contact a co-chair, any team member or visit www.relayforlife.org/yorkne.
