Warren Correctional Institution's Relay for Life

Warren Correctional Institution's Relay for Life

Warren Correctional Institution held their first “Relay for Life” event to benefit the American Cancer Society.  Southwest Regional staff, LeCI Warden Tom Schweitzer, along with WCI staff and inmates participated in the 5K walk/run.   All participants had an opportunity to shop for supportive items at the “Cancer Awareness Boutique”, participate in a balloon launch and in a “hand print” memory sheet to acknowledge those that have been touched by cancer.  Employee Activity Chairperson, Phyllis Hawkins, created a quilt from American Cancer Society shirts that were used from prior fund raising events which was then auctioned off as a fundraiser.  A grand total of $1,576.00 was donated to Ms. Addie VonDenBenken, ACS representative for Warren County.
