Haywood EMC employees participated in the Haywood County Relay for Life walk last month in Canton. Throughout the night, members of the community completed laps around the set track to honor those lost to cancer and help raise money for research. Luminaries lined the walking path, each light representing a life affected by cancer among the participants.
HEMC helped raise more than $3,600 for cancer research through selling hot dogs and drinks at the event, as well as with employee and member donations. The co-op also will participate in Transylvania County’s Relay for Life event in August.
