To the Editor,
The Fillmore County American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” at Sylvan Park in Lanesboro on Friday evening, August 11, and Saturday morning, August 12 was truly a memorable and successful event. Over 260 people walked for the cause including many cancer survivors. The program and the 2,241 luminaries dedicated in honor and memory of loved ones touched by cancer was indeed a beautiful tribute.
A special thank you to all of you good people who supported this cause in so many ways. You helped raise approximately $53,000 which will be used to help with transportation costs for Fillmore County patients, increase our equipment in our loan closet for citizen’s use, expand educational programs for schools and health facilities, and fund cancer research programs.
Thank you, each and every one, for your help in the fight against cancer!

To the Editor,
We want to thank all of the "Feel-more" Healthy in Fillmore County participants and sponsors. The fitness challenge was a huge success. Out of 171 registered participants, 94 of them completed and returned the fitness challenge map. The finishers ranged from six to 89 years old. The first female finisher was 12 year old Laura Johnson. She received a backpack full of six yard games. The first male finisher was 47 year old Steve Busher who received a $15 gift certificate to Gander Mountain. Busher actually finished five fitness challenge maps!! The youngest participant was six year old Tyler Hermanson who received Magic Mitts. The oldest participant was 89 year old Alice Schumar who received a fitness challenge t-shirt.
The names of all the finishers went into a drawing for prizes. There were 47 participants that won prizes ranging from free fitness center passes to sports equipment. The list of winners is available at Fillmore County Public Health.
The health event committee wants to thank the community for its enthusiasm and support. "You don’t stop exercising because you grow old. You grow old because you stop exercising." Keep up the good work!
