Georgia Power renews volunteer support

By Mark Zalewski, North American Editor

The Tour de Georgia has announced Georgia Power as a returning sponsor for the 2006 event, bringing support for the Tour's volunteer workforce programmes. Close to 4,000 volunteers are expected throughout the week of the 2006 race.

"We support the Tour de Georgia because the event not only provides economic impact to Georgia, but because proceeds benefit the Georgia Cancer Coalition, " said Judy Anderson, Georgia Power's Senior Vice President, Charitable Giving. "Georgia Power's giving is focused on issues, such as preventing cancer, that directly affect our customers, our employees, our business and our shareholders. As a company, we want to be judged not only by the service we provide, but also for what we do to improve the quality of life for all people in places where we live and work."

This will be the fourth year for Georgia Power to participate as a Tour de Georgia sponsor, providing funding and assistance since the event's inaugural race in 2003.
