Students to relay for life, research

Student teams are needed to represent TCC and participate in a relay for cancer research.

“ Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs. [Competing teams] take turns walking or running laps … trying to keep at least one team member on the track at all times,” according to The American Cancer Society’s Web site at www.cancer.org.

An eight to 15 member team can hold campus fund-raisers, like car washes and raffles.

“ Now is the time to start getting teams together,” Nanette Rix, Relay for Life of Northeast Tarrant County event chairperson, said.

The 2006 Northeast Tarrant County Relay is 6 p.m.-6 a.m. April 28-29 at Trinity High School. Cancer survivors can participate in the relay’s opening Survivor’s Lap.

The kickoff party is 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31, at Harris Methodist HEB Hospital in the Edwards Cancer Center West I and II conference room.

“ The goal for this year’s relay is to raise $100,000 with 100 teams participating, from the 13 NE Tarrant County cities,” Lisa Orr, MBA public relations coordinator Harris Methodist HEB Hospital, said.

Call Rix at 817-685-4960 or Jolene Schnider at 817-685-4949 to sign up or for questions.
