American Cancer Society/Team Christine Relay for Life, is raising funds for cancer in a special way.

Three members of the group have created a king sized quilt and pillows to raffle off at the Relay For Life of Richland County on June 29 at Madison Comprehensive High School.

Team Captain Barbara Peiker said the quilt represents hope and courage.

"This was a labor of love from the team members," Peiker said. 

Barbara and her husband team co-captain Norbert Peiker said its a personal commitment to help the cause to eradicate cancer. Norbert has been battling stage 4 prostate cancer for 18 years.

The Peikers' said they're fighting for the cause to raise money so more people can live. They said giving is not an option for individuals and their families affected by cancer.

The Peikers said Team Christine honors their friend Christine Ball, a Bellville woman who died several years ago of breast cancer.

To date 1,000 tickets have been sold and 200 tickets are still available.

Tickets are $10 a piece or 3 tickets for $25. For more information contact Barbara Peiker at 419-886-0022.
