Mendota Gearing Up For Relay For Life

Posted by wlpo on July 10, 2013

If you’re wondering why Mendota is a little more purple than usual this week it’s for a good cause.

Organizers with the Upper Illinois Valley Relay for Life are asking businesses to “paint the town purple” this week ahead of this weekend’s relay at Lake Mendota.  The relay starts at 6.

Organizers so far say there are around 60 teams signed up who have raised over 106 thousand dollars.  The fundraising goal for the Upper Illinois Valley Relay is 150 thousand dollars.

Money raised goes to the American Cancer Society.
