Static Control employees participated in Sanford’s Relay for Life which was held on 10 May. The annual walk raises money to support ongoing cancer research so that one day, cancer is a thing of the past.
Starting with the Survivor and Caregiver Laps at the event, survivors take a celebratory lap, with the crowd cheering them on. Then caregivers take their turn to get recognized for all they do to support their loved ones.
Once the event is in full swing, teammates take turns walking the track or path to symbolise the ongoing fight against cancer. Between laps, you can check out other teams’ tents for games and activities and help support the cause by purchasing raffle tickets or food, according to the American Cancer Society website.
Then, Luminaria are lit “to remember those we’ve lost, celebrate cancer survivors, and show everyone affected by cancer that we are the light in the darkness,” the website continues.
This year Static Control employees raised more than $6,500 (€5,783) for the American Cancer Society.
The company added: “The theme was Christmas for a Cure, and it looks like a few Static employees got to meet Santa in his off season.”
