Vinton Chamber of Commerce Advertises for Relay for Life Event

Posted: Updated:
The Vinton Chamber of Commerce is working to get the word out about “Relay for Life.”

They placed purple ribbons on signs, fences, and even bridges throughout the town to raise awareness about the Vinton “Relay for Life” event.

Cancer survivors Don and Carolyn Williams say that even though Vinton is small, the town gives big.

Last year the town raised a little over $100,000.

The Williams say it saved their lives.

“I got a drug that has been researched for one year that, with God’s grace, probably saved my life,” Carolyn Williams said. “[Don]’s getting a drug that’s been out last August, the same month he was diagnosed.  We firmly believe in research.”

The Vinton Relay for Life is all William Byrd High School on May 2nd.
