The faculty and staff of the Knoxville Regional Center will be participating in a Relay For Life event in April. In order to raise dollars and awareness, the Tusculum College administration has given approval for the KRC Relay for Life team to host “Denim Fridays.” On the designated Fridays, Tusculum College personnel who make a $5 donation will earn the right to wear denim on a Friday.
The first “Denim Friday” was held Friday, January 29, and they will be held each Friday through Friday, April 30. A $5 donation must be made each week in order to participate by wearing denim. Persons making a $50 donation receive the opportunity to wear denim on all Fridays during the campaign.
Donations can be made online at www.relayforlife.org/westknoxville can be sent to Cliff Gjertson, director of the Knoxville Regional Center. Checks should be made to “Tusculum-Knoxville Team.”
According to Gjertson, the team has currently raised $660 toward their goal of $3,000.
