Relay for Life continues its fight against cancer
SPRING VALLEY — The mission of Relay for Life of Bureau County is to give hope to people affected by cancer and to raise funds for the American Cancer Society, according to spokesperson Shirley Morse.
For nearly 20 years, Relay for Life of Bureau County has put feet to its mission by organizing an overnight walk fundraiser at the Hall High School track in Spring Valley. Friendships and support groups have been formed. Throughout the years, $1,344,258 has been raised for the American Cancer Society.
On Aug. 2, Bureau County area residents and guests are encouraged to participate in the next Relay for Life walk, which begins at 5 p.m. with a free survivor dinner for survivors and their guests, followed by the official kick-off at 6:30 p.m. The event continues through the night until 5 a.m. Aug. 3. with a closing ceremony. Of course, people may come and go as needed, Morse said.
