The Timpson ISD Relay for Life team sponsored a
Paint the Town Purple” kickoff celebration on Saturday,
March 2. Mayor Debra Smith and the Timpson City
Council passed a resolution at the February 19th meeting
declaring March “Paint the Town Purple Month.”
Purple is the color of the Relay for Life, which is the
American Cancer Society’s premiere fund raising event.
To show support for cancer survivors and caregivers, and
to honor those who have lost their cancer battle, citizens
and businesses are asked to display purple ribbons,
At the kickoff, there was gospel singing, children’s
activities, concession stands, a bike-a-thon, the sale of
various cancer awareness items among other events on
Saturday and great fun was had by all.
All the funds raised by the Timpson ISD Relay team
go to the Shelby County Relay for Life and ultimately to
the American Cancer Society. The majority of the funds
raised in Shelby County benefit Shelby County residents
who are battling cancer.
