Katie Crispin said, “This was the first year for hosting an event with the American Cancer Society and Anderson One, and it was a complete success due to the phenomenal support from the district schools that chose to participate. The schools did an amazing job raising money for such a worthy cause of fighting cancer.”
"There are so many reasons that I spend my time and energy to volunteer for this organization and I truly value what it brought to our community and district last year. Cancer has touched almost everyone’s life in one way or another. I am so proud of the accomplishments of the Piedmont, Pelzer, Powdersville and Williamston communities for making our first annual North Anderson Relay for Life such a success. Our success was without a doubt due to the commitment and foundation that Anderson District One provided. I look forward to the North Anderson Relay for Life becoming one of the Premier Relays for the state of SC just like our District's school system, said" Wes Porter - Co-Chair North Anderson Relay for Life.
The 2012 Relay for Life, "When We Wish Upon a Cure," will have a kick off meeting at Spearman Elementary School on October 4. Wes Porter will be the 2012 Relay Chair along with Megan Selman, Wren High teacher.
