Letter: Relay just around cornerCan you believe that we are counting down the days to the 2009 Hudson Area Relay For Life? It just doesn’t seem possible that it is that time of year already.

Can you believe that we are counting down the days to the 2009 Hudson Area Relay For Life? It just doesn’t seem possible that it is that time of year already. The Relay For Life is celebrating its 25th birthday and the Hudson Relay is celebrating its 10th birthday.
I don’t think that Dr. Klatt realized what he started when he walked around that Tacoma track for 24 hours! These worldwide events have raised millions of dollars in the fight against cancer. It truly is a fight, with the statistic that one out of three people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
I invite you all to join the Hudson community on June 26 and 27 at Newton Field and help celebrate the American Cancer Society, the proud sponsor of birthdays! Please consider joining a team, starting a team, donating, or just coming down to see what the relay is all about.
For more information, visit www.relayforlife.org and type in a city near you. Feel free to call our local ACS office at (800) 441-2943 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
