Entry fees for Sunny King Criterium to cancer research

Entry fees from those participating in the amateur and pro races of the Sunny King Criterium in Anniston, Alabama, on May 6 will be donated to Relay for Life, a local American Cancer Society fund-raiser. "The goal is a $10,000 donation," said Mike Poe, race director. A 15-minute time slot has been allotted between races to allow for a special presentation by Relay for Life officials from the race stage.

In 2005, the Sunny King Criterium donated $7,880 to Relay for Life and honoured Ron Williams, captain of the 2004 USA Paralympic cycling team and winner of silver and bronze medals, in Athens, Greece. Ron was presented with a Key to the City by the Mayor of the City of Anniston, Chip Howell. Ron, a cancer-survivor and resident of nearby Birmingham, AL, is registered to race at Sunny King again in 2006.
