Mark your calendars for May 1-2, 2009. Relay for Life activities are taking place throughout the valley. If you have never attended one of the Relay for Life events, I encourage you to do so. It is a moving, emotional experience that honors cancer survivors and pays tribute to those lost to the disease. We participated in the event last year for the first time and look forward to the event this year. Statistically speaking, most people know of someone who has been touched by cancer.
The Huntsville Metro event will be held at John Hunt Park on May 1st beginning at 7:00 PM. Employees of North Alabama Educators Credit Union will be volunteering during the event. Look for our tent along the walking trail route and please stop by! We also encourage everyone to visit our Relay for Life page in advance of the event to help raise money for the cause. Here is a link to the credit union's Relay for Life page; http://main.acsevents.org/goto/naecu . (A link is also provided on the credit union home page).
The credit union has had several employees over the past few years who have experienced cancer first hand. We lost one of these employees to cancer. Please join us on May 1st as we honor our fallen friend but also celebrate the success of our cancer survivors.
