HCCA Walk for Hope raises $75,150

Posted in News

Saturday stood as a day of pride for those who had looked cancer in the eye and won as they lined up to take their survivors’ lap around the Halifax County Fairgrounds during the Halifax County Cancer Association Walk for Hope.

It also gave family and friends of those who had family members who weren’t as fortunate with their cancer battles an opportunity to remember and honor them as they raised funds for the cancer association.

New this year was a chance for HCCA directors and employees to kiss a pig if $75,000 was raised, exceeding last year’s proceeds of $70,026.88, and they raised just enough.

By the end of the day a total of $75,150.26 had been collected, and the pig had been kissed.

“We had a good time (trying to kiss the pig). I believe it helped raise the funds. The people really enjoyed the idea of us doing that,” said Director Sharon Blosser.

To help kick off the day, Delegate James Edmunds presented a resolution from the general assembly to Blosser commending the association for its deep commitment throughout the past 60 years.

At New Year's Eve party, a safe haven and chance to heal

Posted in News

Del. James Edmunds stood Saturday night watching large groups of young people shooting basketball, playing cornhole and throwing frizbees in the Halifax County High School gym. Meanwhile, others were dancing in the lobby to popular tunes being spun by DJ Kirby Saunders.

It was New Year's Eve at Halifax County High School.

No formal crowd count was recorded, but Del. Edmunds, who assisted in organizing the event, estimated that 800 to 1,000 people attended the party held as a celebration of the lives of Casey Pulliam and Olivia Noblin, two Halifax County High School student-athletes who were killed in an automobile crash 10 days earlier, and in honor of Joey Myers, who was seriously injured in that accident.
