Special to The Mirror
A Thomson woman is doing her part to help fight cancer.

Kendrick Harris, a 2002 graduate of Briarwood Academy, spent Saturday, October 22 participating in the Race for the Cure in Macon.

The 2005 event marked Miss Harris' third year of participation in the event.

Aside from walking and running in the Race for the Cure, she also volunteers in set up and clean up at the annual event.

"I walk for Hope: Hope that one day they will find a cure to make breast cancer go away," she said.

"I walk for the people I love and have influenced my life. I walk for friends, family and everyone in the world with breast cancer. I walk in celebration of Gennie Callaway, Lucy Ward, "Mae-Mae," Mabel Johnson, Eloise Wood, Debbie Lindsey, Louise Moore, Vicky Batrous, Kim Carr, and Sadie Brooks. But most of all I walk in memory of my friend and first grade teacher, Nancy Callaway Long."

Miss Harris is a senior at Brenau University in Gainesville, Ga., where she will graduate in the spring with a degree in marketing.
