Mendota Relay For Life Kicks Off

Posted by wlpo on January 25, 2011

Plans are underway for the 2nd annual Relay for Life of Upper Illinois Valley.

A kickoff event is February 10th from 5 until 7 at Mendota High School.  You can sign up your relay team at the open house and also pick a campsite.  If you sign up on the 10th, the normal team registration fee is waived.

Last year’s inaugural event had over 80 people help raise 15 thousand dollars for the American Cancer Society.  The relay in Mendota was started after officials didn’t think many people from northern La Salle County were making the trip to the annual Relay for Life in Streator.

This year’s relay happens on July 9th and 10th at Mendota Lake Park.
