Cancer touches so many people in our community. Relay for Life is an opportunity to celebrate people who have battled or are battling cancer, to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to take action to finish the fight against cancer by raising funds for the American Cancer Society.

I would like to thank the citizens of Appomattox County who made it possible to raise $62.306.50 so far during the 2019 Appomattox Relay for Life. Donations made through August will go toward the 2019 Relay and the 2020 Relay officially begins in September.

Please join us by saying “thank you” to the businesses and organizations displaying purple bows for their corporate sponsorship or their Paint the Town Purple participation.

- Evelyn Ford, corporate sponsor chairperson for Appomattox Relay for Life
