The Career Quest Learning Center in Jackson took part in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life Friday, August 7 through August 8 at the Cascades Falls Park, raising more than $400.
“This is an event our campus will be participating in every year to show support and give back to the Jackson community,” said Jackson Campus
Manager Alex Masten. “Too many people are touched by cancer every year. The Relay for Life is just a small way we can show our support to each other, and our community, through strength in numbers.”
Career Quest employees, students, friends and family members participated, and they also offered free wellness checks to the other participants.
“The commitment of our campus through Team Career Quest can help bring us one step closer to finishing the fight of cancer,” said Masten.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement symbolizes hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. This is an opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember those you have lost, and raise funds and awareness to fight back and help end cancer forever.
Since 1995, Career Quest has implemented its mission to provide students with the skills required for employment and/or career advancement, by educating and training them with the equipment and technology found in the current workplace.
