Senator Genevieve Whitaker and members of her staff attended the 2022 Relay for Life on Saturday, October 15, 2022. This year Senator Whitaker joined the St. Croix Legislature Team, along with her colleagues to show their support for breast cancer survivors and those who have passed. Many teams from different organizations, as well as families of loved ones participated, and made donations to support the cause. The day was also jam-packed with activities like Zumba, local entertainment, celebrating the survivors, but most importantly the lighting of the HOPE logo acknowledging those we lost to breast cancer.
Senator Whitaker congratulates the committee on raising $255,000 and encourages the community to continue to donate towards finding a cure. The funds raised at the event will help with receiving free mammograms and off-island travel for care, research, advocacy, and family services; but most importantly remain in the Virgin Islands. Donations will continue to be collected through December, here’s the link to make donations today: Relay For Life of St Croix | (acsevents.org) We hope the American Cancer Society Relay for Life organization continues to flourish, and Senator Whitaker looks forward to seeing everyone next year!
