“A simple thank you could never express the gratitude that our Relay For Life of Central Ellis County Committee and team members has for our corporate sponsors,” said Mary Ruth Mitchell, Corporate Sponsor Chair. “Many of our sponsors have been dedicated supporters since Relay was established in Ellis County eighteen years ago.”

“In 1997 Patty and Joe Chagnon had a passionate desire to do their part to assist The American Cancer Society raise funds for cancer research. Patty remained Event Chair for the first ten years and was very successful in getting the local Relay For Life established. She and the Corporate Sponsor Chairs diligently called on merchants and individuals in our local communities to solicit their support of this very worthwhile cause – finding a cure for cancer,” Mitchell added.

Mitchell said that for the thousands of dollars that the sponsors have donated through the years, Relay would like to say a big thank you.
