MENDOTA — The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley will host its annual kick-off event at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15 at Mendota Civic Center.
Friends, neighbors, cancer survivors, caregivers and anyone interested in learning more about Relay For Life are encouraged to attend.
The kickoff offers information about American Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives faster by helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures and fighting back. Refreshments will be provided. Guests will have the opportunity to win prizes and learn more about the exciting activities planned for this year’s Relay For Life.
Relay For Life is an overnight event where teams of local businesses, schools, churches, community groups and families build awareness and raise funds — prior to and at the event — to fight cancer. While the main objective of Relay For Life is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event helps spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer and unite a community in the fight against cancer.
This year’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley will be July 12 at Lake Mendota Park. Volunteers are needed to organize and recruit teams, secure community support, coordinate logistics, obtain refreshments and prizes, assist with publicity and plan entertainment activities for this exciting and energizing event.
For more information on the Relay For Life kick-off celebration, contact Nancy Jackson at (815) 830-4179 or visit RelayForLife.org. Teams may register online anytime. Also, connect with us on Facebook at RFLUpperIllinoisValley.
