The Fight Rages On! Relay for Life 2012

For the fourth consecutive year, the Lisbon Credit Union joined in the fight against cancer by participating in the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay For Life. This event was held on June 16th and 17th at the Edward Little High School track in Auburn.

Again this year, our 14-member team, led by co-captains Amanda Booker and Kristi Foss, went above and beyond expectations and raised an astounding $6,362.77, easily exceeding our goal of $5,000.  This was our first year participating in the Androscoggin Relay for Life, for the past 3 years we had participated in Brunswick’s Relay, and this event certainly did not disappoint. The weather was spectacular and all who attended and walked the track during the 14 1/2 hour event were treated to a wide variety of activities and entertainment, including a duck drop from a helicopter, a donut eating contest, zumba for all ages and a D.J. who provided a vast assortment of energetic music that kept participants going strong all night long.

To reach and surpass our fundraising goal, our staff participated in a variety of activities:

  • Pledges gathered by our team members - $3,503.77
  • Candy bar sales - $315.00
  • Kiss A Pig Contest - $225.00
  • Bake sale - $496.00
  • Gas grill raffle - $1,191.00
  • Car wash - $172.00
  • Employee - $5.00 Jean Days - $460.00

We would like to say a great big THANK YOU to the Membership!! Without your help, our team would not have achieved such great success.
