Relay for Life Events are Returning Around the Area

A key fundraiser for the American Cancer Society is making a comeback in Iowa this summer. Relay For Life events are being held across the state again where cancer survivors, caregivers and supporters walk around a track for pledges. Tina Morrison is spokeswoman for the Iowa branch of the American Cancer Society.

In past years, Relay for Life events would feature dozens, even hundreds, of people walking around tracks for a certain number of laps or minutes to raise money. Morrison says she’s grateful to see the event returning to communities across Iowa.

Winnebago County opted to combine their Relay with the Forest City Puckerbrush Celebrations instead of the usual late June stand-alone event. The hope was to help both events and take advantage of large Puckerbrush crowds

Relays are planned in the coming weeks in several Iowa cities, including Mt. Pleasant on August 19th, Bettendorf on September 10th, Fairfield on September 13th, Burlington on September 25th, Washington on October 1st, Fort Madison on October 7th, and Boone on October 21st.
