In 2013, the Wittenberg "Spice for Life" team will be back with BBQ chicken, plan chicken sandwiches and a new flavor you will just have to try.
For the six years, Wittenberg, hosted the annual Cancer Survivors’ Banquet. At the YMCA on Jake Alexander Blvd., with fried flounder and all the trimmings. Serving thousands through this out reach.
In 2012 Wittenberg and the "Spice for Life" switched from pork BBQ to BBQ chicken sandwiches.
In 2011 and 2010 Wittenberg participated in Relay For Life serving pork BBQ the night of the Relay.
In 2009 Relay for Life celebrated “25 Years of Hope” of Relay For Life. Last year Rowan County raised over $402,000 with 97 teams participating. The goal for 2009 is to register more teams and raise $500,000.
In 2008, Rowan County received the “Power of Hope” award for having the most survivors (750) in the Southeast United States registered- more than 200 registered survivors over second place. Since we were in first place, Rowan County residents will have the first opportunity to use an experimental treatment if one is developed.
All church members are encouraged to join the “Spice for Life” team of Wittenberg for $10.00, and attend the Relay on Friday, May 1st. All cancer survivors and members see Judy Gould, our Team Captain, for more information.
