The Chattahoochee Tech Paulding Engagement Team supported the Paulding County Relay for Life event on Saturday, May 18, by giving out water to event participants. This year’s event was held at the Watson Government Complex in Dallas, and featured a Survivor/Caregiver Walk along with a luminaria ceremony.
“We were very glad to be involved in this inspirational event which is so important in offering comfort and hope to those who have been affected by cancer,” said Missy Cusack, Chattahoochee Tech Executive Director of Admissions and Records.
Relay for Life is a community-based fundraising event that helps to raise funds for cancer research, as well as help cancer patients and their families have access to the care they need, according to the American Cancer Society. Each year, more than 5,000 Relay for Life events take place in over twenty countries.
