Register Relay For Life Teams

By Staff | Apr 28, 2009

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is just around the corner. Register your team by calling the American Cancer Society or Deb Harris at 712-859-3633. This “celebration of life” brings the Palo Alto County communities together in a unified effort to fight cancer.

Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations, and the public are invited to take part in this exciting team event. The Relay takes place from 12 noon until 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, at Courthouse Square in Emmetsburg.

Relay for Life is a family-oriented event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and also raise funds to support the activities of the American cancer Society. When participants are not taking their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment.

Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals, and schools collect donations and can win individual and team prizes for their efforts.

The funds raised enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services. The money raised goes directly to the American cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.

If you would like to form a team or become involved in the planning of this event, call Deb Harris at 712-859-3633. Volunteers are always needed.
