Mendota Relay For Life Quickly Approaching

Posted by wlpo on July 5, 2012

The third annual Upper Relay for Life of Upper Illinois Valley is just a week away.

The relay at Lake Mendota is coming off a year where it raised 155 thousand dollars in the fight against cancer, ten times the money raised during the inaugural relay.  According to the relay’s website, nearly 500 people are signed up for next Friday and Saturday’s relay with nearly 87 thousand dollars raised online.

The relay kickoff is next Friday at 6 with cleanup Saturday morning at 6.  In between there will be guest speakers, cancer survivor recognitions and luminaria ceremony.
