2007 Sheriff's Ride for the Relay rescheduled

Due to the projected weather forecast for rain, Sheriff Bill Blanton announced that the 2007 Ride for the Relay has been postponed until Saturday, May 12, 2007.

The event will still be held at Gaffney Middle School on E. Frederick St. in Gaffney. Registration will be held from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM. Tickets are $25.00 per person, which includes the ride, meal, prizes, and a tee shirt.

The event started as a means to raise money for the fight against cancer when Sheriff Blanton's wife, Pam, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The event involves a motorcycle ride leaving Gaffney Middle School and traveling about 85 miles arriving back at Gaffney Middle School for a meal and give-a-ways.

People who do not ride can still come, bring the children and enjoy the bikes, live music, meal furnished by Outback, and can buy a tee shirt.

We will have several police motorcycles including the SC Highway Patrol and bikes from other police departments as well taking part in the ride.

Anyone who has cancer or has a loved one suffering from this terrible disease can come by and donate money in honor of or memory of that special person.

All the money raised will be given to the American Cancer Society "Relay For Life".
