RCHS band does its part for cancer cure

-A A +A

I am a sophomore at Roane County High School and a member of the band.  

I’d like to talk about something we do off of the band field.  

For the past three years, the band has participated in the Buddy’s Race for the Cure in Knoxville.  

This is an enjoyable event that supports local research and financial aid for cancer patients in East Tennessee.  

For every year our team, Band Together for the Cure, has participated, we have received awards for largest and fastest community team.  

This event is very important to many of our band members, especially because one of our band alumni members beat cancer while he was in high school.  

Our band is proud and thankful that we are able to participate in this event each year and are looking forward to racing once again on Nov. 10.  
If you would like to race with us you can go to sign up with our team, Band Together for the Cure. under the Buddy’s Race website, www.Buddysrace.org.  

This is a well-anticipated and well- attended tradition.
