Clinton County Democrats looking for a way to give back to the community formed a Clinton County Relay for Life team to help raise funds for people impacted by cancer.
That’s how “Clinton County Dems Kick Cancer” came about!
During Relay for Life, an annual fundraiser walk that benefits the American Cancer Society, teams come together for 6-24 hours. Team members take turns walking around a designated path the entire time.
“Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we,” explains the American Cancer Society website.
Clinton County Relay for Life is scheduled for May 18, 2019 at Riverview Park. The Relay will officially take place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. that day – but many events and fundraisers will lead up to that final event.
Team Co-Captains: Roxanne Embick & Lauri Schaitkin
Team Bookkeepers: Angela Black & Lauri Schaitkin
Team PR Coordinator: Bill Mincer
