  •     As Chair of this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life I would like to thank the residents of West Polk County for their generosity and support.  We had 11 teams participate in this years relay.     
        By all accounts, each and every team member did an outstanding job in their fundraising efforts and should be commended for their hard work.     
        With your help and support we were able to raise over $52,000 for the fight against cancer.  The proceeds from this event will go towards research, education, advocacy, and to the various programs and services we provide directly within our community.     
        We were honored to be joined by a number of survivors who walked the opening Survivors Lap, officially kicking off this year’s event.  These survivors are the reason we continue the fight.  Their participation inspires hope in those currently battling cancer.      
        A special thanks to the many Relay For Life volunteers who worked to make this event a success – celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against a disease that takes too much.      
        We would also like to thank the following business’s for their sponsorship.  Relay for Life would not be possible without them.  They are :  Altru, Bauer Honey, Bremer Bank, Christian Motors, Christian Brothers Ford, Crookston Sports Center, Crookston Times, Culligan, Erickson Embroidery, Erickson’s Smokehouse Grill & Bar, First State Bank of Fertile, Kaste Seeds Inc., Geff & Lille Magsam, New Flyer, RiverView Health, TDS Inc., Todd’s Landscaping, UMC, Valley Shopper, Walmart, Wish Upon A Star, 4 Wheel Drive, Jason Hassel.     
        I would also like to give a very special thank you to all of our generous sponsors who donated a variety of items and food to the event.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated!    
        The date for next year’s Relay for Life has not yet been set but you can get involved with Relay For Life at any time.  Check out www.relayforlife.org or call 1-800-ACS-2345 for more information.    
        Again, thank you for supporting the American Cancer Society “Relay For Life”.
