The West County Relay for Life Team Caring Hearts held a fish fry on Friday, April 18, 2014 at Macedonia United Methodist Church in Odenton, Maryland.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a community-based event in which relay teams walk around a local track in an effort to raise funds and awareness about cancer and cancer research.
Rolinda McIlwain, team captain of the Caring Hearts Relay Team, said this is the sixth fund raising event that the team has held leading up to the big race on May 30, 2014 at Meade Middle school in Severn, Maryland.
The Caring Hearts team is made up of cancer survivors who are doing what they can to help in the fight against disease. They have held fundraisers at Chick-fil-A, Busters Ice Cream and have an upcoming fundraiser at Applebee’s.
The team’s goal for the fish fry was two thousand dollars. Members of the team alternated their time during the all-day fish fry to meet the needs of all the orders.
