Sabrina Toombs: Relay For Life teams need to work together


— My brother died of Cancer last October.

So, when I heard about the Relay For Life in July for Craig. I wanted to join and give back something to a town that has done so much for my brother and his family.

Now, I am not so sure I will do this again. There has been so much competing between the teams as if there was something personal to be gained rather then a joint effort to gather money to fight a cause all share in some way.

Who cares who has what for a fundraiser everyone should go to as many as they can even if it's for the other team. Some can make it one time, some another. The paper should carry out its pledge to run the information for free. In the community news, or whatever. The joint effort is to fight cancer, not for your name in the paper. "One for all and all for one" isn't in the Bible, but should be.

We need to pull together.
