ATHENS, Ala. – The Limestone County Relay for Life team, County for a Cure, is starting the 2019 season with a $2,500 check from Modern Woodmen of America Representative Andrew Kirk.
The check was a matching grant for County for a Cure’s 2nd annual Mud Volleyball Tournament. This check allowed the fundraiser to gross over $12,000 which went directly to the American Cancer Society.
Kirk presented the check on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 to American Cancer Society Community Manager Cherry Hammonds and County for a Cure team captain Michelle Williamson.
Hammonds said, “Andrew Kirk with Modern Woodmen is a great friend of the Limestone Relay. With this donation, it will continue to fund the American Cancer Society mission which is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.”
Williamson said, “County for A Cure is very thankful for our partnership with such an amazing organization and look forward to our partnership to continue in the future.”
Kirk said, “It was an honor to partner with the American Cancer Society at the 2018 Mud Volleyball Tournament. Modern Woodmen of America loves giving back and serving its community in which we live.”
