American Internet Tech donates to American Cancer Society (February 2019)

February has crossed our doorstep and we welcome this month with as many actions as we can to support American Cancer Society and all of the cancer patients that are in need of help.

In Peoria Heights, 150 people took part in the Super Shuffle 5-K. The group made their way from Miller to Marieta and finished on Grandview Drive. Organizers say the race is geared to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The theme for this year had people celebrating the Super Bowl.

"People are dressed up in jerseys and have their favorite football teams on, so I think the Super Bowl theme, I think people are having a really good time with," said Audrey Williams, race director of Super Shuffle 5-K. The race director also says she hopes this race can become an annual event.

A unique opportunity to take in a play and support the American Cancer Society will present itself on Feb. 16 with a production of “Love Letters.” It is described as a “non traditional play” written by playwright A.R. Gurney, which tells the story of Andy and Melissa, who reveal their “true selves” as they remain in contact through all of life’s successes and tragedies. Bidwell resident Laura Miller and Mike Kennedy, from Middleport, are Melissa and Andy. Audience members are free to focus on the words and the ever-changing relationship between the two characters, according to a press release about the event which is being presented by Sparkle Productions of Gallia County at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 16 at The Artisan Shoppe and Studio, 749 Third Ave., Gallipolis. This play puts two actors on a stage where they read correspondence spanning 50 years. Doors open at 7 p.m., tickets are $10 and may be purchased online.

There are so many ways to contribute to this special cause if someone wishes to do so. American Internet Tech is always supporting American Cancer Society and we are proceeding to one more monthly donation, for all these special people that can use a helping hand!
