By The Staff

Although Relay 2008 was cut short by stormy weather on June 27, it didn’t come to a screeching halt. On Saturday evening, July 19 more than 60 people including team members, team captains, survivors and Relay supporters met at the Henry County Fairgrounds for a special three hour Relay Finale ending with a moving Luminary Ceremony.

Henry County is a loving county and generous county, a county we can all be proud to call home. In the past six months, this small community with a population slightly over 15,000 has reached deep into its pockets to support many worthy causes: benefits for families struck by cancer, Crusade for Children, Church Capital Campaigns, Henry County School projectsee..and you have reached even deeper into your pockets to support Henry County Relay For Life. Because of your generosity and your faithful support, we are making a difference in the lives of those struck by cancer.

Thanks to all who supported Relay 2008 and to those who attended the Finale. Henry County Relay For Life 2008 would not have been a success had it not been for the leaders who channeled their time and energy into fundraising for this very worthy cause.
