April 26-- -Robert Toombs Christian Academy participated in the Toombs County Relay for Life program this year to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  The newly formed RTCA Student Government Association took on the responsibility of fundraising and promoting the RTCA team.

Teams from around Toombs County met in Booster Stadium to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments.  The event began with a cancer survivors' walk and followed by a caregivers' walk. During the event members from various teams walked to show their support for finding a cure for cancer. 

The theme for this year’s event was "Games" and RTCA chose the television game show "Minute to Win it".  RTCA decorated the tent with clocks and stop watches and had several games for people to play.  RTCA sold barbecue plates to also help raise money at the event.  Middle School SGA students Maggie Standard, Andrew Tuck, Walker Moncus and Bradlan McDonald, along with Seniors Kailee Williamson and Maegan Sager helped set up the tent, ran the games and walked the track for the first half of the event. High School SGA members Drew Fowler, Roya Adkins, Baylee Williamson, Rose Bishop, Wil Duvall, Evan Venable, Kate Sullivan, and Ansley Scott finished out the night for the RTCA team.

RTCA won the battle with a total of $4,634.00.  RTCA thanks all those who contributed and helped either by working the tent, baking goodies to sell or just making a contribution.  Everyone’s hard work was greatly appreciated.

RTCA is only $400 away from the school’s goal of $6,000 and from being named a "Gold" team.  Contributions are still being accepted.  RTCA is in it to win it - let's beat cancer!!!
