Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley receives honors

Posted by wlpo on September 28, 2011

Raising money for a good cause is enough of a reward to keep up the hard work but it still feels good to receive acknowledgment.

Organizers of the Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley earned a number of awards and recognition last weekend during the Illinois Division Summit of the American Cancer Society.

The Mendota relay won first place in the state for growth of cancer-fighting funds raised for events in their population category.  Three of their teams were also honored at a reception.

They’re already planning for next years relay on Saturday, July 14th, 2012.
