THE OUTER BANKS RELAY FOR LIFE
As many of you know, Corolla Real Estate, Corolla Classic Vacations and Corolla Classic Construction are active participants in The Relay for Life. Besides being corporate sponsors, some of us serve on the planning committee and most of us are members of our team. In case you are unfamiliar with The Relay for Life, it is a team event to raise money for the American Cancer Society that has spread to all 50 states as well as several other countries. Teams collect donations and have fund raisers, then participate in a 24 hour relay. Our team, the Corolla Clubbers, helped lead the County to the #1 spot in the nation for its size, all thanks to the generosity of so many people. The Outer Banks Relay for Life for 2009 was held at the First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills and was truly a celebration of life, with live entertainment, food, a silent auction and games and, of course, teams walking the track the entire time. It is a time for the community to come together to celebrate with survivors, a time to remember those that have succumbed to this horrible disease, and an opportunity to raise money for research, assistance and advocacy. 2010's event will again take place at 1st Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills and will be held on May 15th and 16th.
Cancer has touched the lives of everyone we know in some manner. If you would like to make a donation to this cause, please make your check payable to The American Cancer Society and send it to us C/O Corolla Real Estate at P.O. Box 640, Corolla, NC 27927. If you have any questions please call us at 1.866.453.0797. Together we do make a difference!
