Letter about Relay for Life

One of the largest fund-raising events this summer is coming up on August 8 & 9 in Rushford, MN in the Rushford Fire Hall and Depot Museum area. It is our ninth American Cancer Society Relay For Life in Fillmore County.

Almost everyone reading this letter has been touched by cancer in some way. Whether a loved one, friend, neighbor, or co-worker, you likely know someone who has battled the disease. Even if you are not participating on a team, you are invited to enjoy the entertainment and food, starting at 6 PM in the fire hall. At 6pm all survivors will walk the first lap around the walking track lined with liminarias. Won’t you come, help line the track, and join the many team members clap and cheer the survivors on their first lap?

The Survivor’s Tea and Program will be at 4 PM on August 8th at the Tenborg Center in Rushford. All survivors in Fillmore County are invited to come and enjoy tea and wonderful fellowship with fellow survivors. This is an open invitation to ALL survivors.

At dusk the walking track will be illuminated by thousands of luminarias, each bearing the name of a cancer survivor or the name of someone who has lost his or her battle with cancer. Once you have witnessed the lighted luminarias lining the track you will not forget the beauty of this event. You may purchase your luminaria that evening at the event.

If you have not been to a Relay For Life before, I urge you to attend. It is a great experience that lets you know that there is hope for everyone who has come in contact with this deadly disease.

I hope to see you in Rushford on the 8th!
