KRH's Relay for Life SuccessfulFriday, June 20 was Kingfisher County's annual Relay for Life. The KRH team co-captains Linda Schemmer and Marla Ogilvie stated our fundraising efforts for the hospital team was a huge success! "Our hospital brought in more than $8,000.00, well above last year's total." Kingfisher Regional Hospital was also a platinum sponsor for the event as well.|
KRH's efforts assisted the county goal of reaching over $92,000.00. Raising funds is just one part of the Kingfisher County annual event, which draws individuals from across the state. The participants come to support survivors and their caregivers to celebrate life and the hope that cancer research eventually will destroy a disease that impacts so many lives.
The planning stages for the hospital's events began this past January. The theme for this year's event was "Route 66, We're Crusin' for a Cure". In April, the hospital hosted a chicken strip dinner; in May, a bake sale; and then in June, a chicken strip dinner and silent auction. "Our efforts don't end just there, on the day of the event we continued to raise funds by raffling several baskets and selling b-b-q brisket sandwiches," states Marla. "It takes alot of people to assist this type of event," stated Linda. "We're so thankful we had a great team that came together to make it work."
Team members consisted of: Linda Schemmer, co-captain, Marla Ogilvie, co-captain, Ann Finley, Sharla Jeter, Hannah Powell, Ashely Gibson, Debbie Daugherty, Denise OwenL, Tenessa Pinkerton, Pam Schlegal, Janice Spencer, Deborah Day, Kari East, Lisa Victor, Erin Scammahorn, Chuck Baldwin, Samantha Maehs, and Angie Ulsaker.
