I know your get many requests to send out notices to your email group so here's another one.  Don't know if you have a policy on sending out emails like this but if not and you get the chance, please send out to help this worthy cause.





Sullivan County Relay For Life:


Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's signature event, bringing communities together in hope, celebration and memory.  It is a unique event that offers everyone in the community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer.  The overnight event remembers those who have lost the fight against cancer and honors those who have survived.  This year's Sullivan County Relay For Life will be held on June 2-3, 2006 inside the Bristol Motor Speedway. 


Teams from Sullivan County will take to the “track” from 7pm-7am.  Because Relay For Life is a community event, anyone and everyone can participate.  Businesses, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, churches, schools, service organizations, etc. can form teams of 8 to 15 people.  During the event, team members take turns walking on the track and camping out overnight.  Each participant is encouraged to raise at least $100 for the American Cancer Society. 


Survivors are invited to join us as our honorary guest in the Survivors Lap, which begins Relay For Life.  If you are interested in participating in Relay this year either by forming a team or through sponsorship, please contact one of the following people for details:  Lee Chase, Team Recruitment Co-Chair, 578-1510, or Anna Catherine Davenport, ACS Staff, 975-0635,  Please visit the event website:

Kingsport is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the Eastern U.S. This city of 50,000 in a metro of 308,000, was planned by renowned American planner John Nolen in his office at Harvard Square. Located in the lush green foothills of the Tennessee Valley, it is surrounded by the Southern Highlands and mountain lakes. Kingsport is home to Marriott’s and thousands of acres of unique, natural amenities at Bays Mountain and Warriors Path Parks. The natural geography provides a temperate, well-balanced climate with four seasons and a natural shelter from extreme weather. Population growth has also been well-balanced, ensuring you will not outgrow your decision to relocate. With no personal property taxes, special assessments, or state income taxes on salaries/wages, you’ll find that Kingsport has a very low cost of living coupled with an exceptionally high quality of life (see for yourself at The regional airport (TRI) has direct flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Orlando and St. Pete/Clearwater with easy access, parking, and virtually no security lines. The public education system was planned by Columbia University and Newsweek has repeatedly recognized the local high school as one of the best in America. Year in and year out our graduates go on to the top colleges and universities (and without costly private school tuition fees). Harvard also recognized Kingsport in 2009 with the Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiative. What are you waiting for? It’s time to leave the high costs, traffic jams, and stress behind and discover this hidden gem.
