CBA Members help support Relay For Life
by Marc Klinger
On Friday night, May 16th, members of the Carolina Balloon Association put on a static display for Relay For Life of Statesville for the third year. This annual event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to unite as a community to honor cancer survivors, remember those who lost the fight, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease.
It’s well known that the Carolina BalloonFest’s primary beneficiary is Relay for Life so it’s no surprise the number of positive comments we received from attendees. Having the balloons as a backdrop for the evening help make it just that much more special for this years all night event.
We are quite fortunate in Statesville to have great support from the local pilots and crew members who turned out to help make this a wonderful night. Thanks to everyone who jumped in to get the balloons stood up and looking great for the crowd and helping support this important cause.
We all know someone who has been touched by cancer. If you’re looking to help make a difference get involved. More information about Relay for Life can be found here relayforlife.org.
