Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates has been one of the sponsors of the Dare County Relay for Life for quite a number of years. It feels really good to be connected to community effort that does so much good for so many people.
The Relay for Life kicked off at 1:00 o’clock Saturday afternoon and walkers kept going all through the night ending at Sunday morning at 8:00. Held at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo, it was a great venue. Walkers experienced just about ideal weather with bright sunshine, if a bit cool, but the lower temperatures made it easier for the participants.
The first lap belongs to the cancer survivors-and seeing the children, mothers, fathers, the elderly, teenagers is a reminder that this is truly a disease that effects everyone in the community.
The efforts of the walkers paid off with over $40,000 raised toward finding a cure for cancer.
A quick housekeeping note: in our last blog we mentioned that the Beach Road just north of the Black Pelican was washed out. NCDOT is on the job and has indicated that they’ll have the road repaired and open by Friday.
