Another fun way that SMH has devised to raise funds for cancer is a pink pedal car raffle. The pedal car was decorated and donated by cancer survivor, Bill Calvert, husband of Regina Calvert, SMH employee. The back panel of the car says “I support Relay for Life”. Raffle tickets for this adorable little car are on sale now at the hospital. Chances to win this toy car are $5.00 each or five for $20.00. The car will be on exhibit at all SMH Relay for Life events, and raffle tickets will be available. Tickets may also be purchased by calling SMH at (217) 774-3961. Please ask for Jean Hudson. All income from this raffle will also be donated to the Relay for Life by the SMH team.
Marilyn Sears, CEO of SMH said, “We at Shelby Memorial Hospital would like to invite everyone to join in our fight against cancer. We work hard to find ways to fund cancer research. We take the fight seriously, but we want to have fun in the process. Together, with your help, we will finish the fight against cancer.”
