Everyone in the community is invited to attend the Relay for Life.

Relay For Life is a grassroots fundraising event in which individuals

and teams of participants in nearly 5,100 communities nationwide walk around a track to celebrate the lives of those who have faced cancer,

remember loved ones lost, and commit to fight back against the disease.

The money raised through Relay For Life

supports the American Cancer Society's efforts to

create a world with less cancer.

Anyone interested in making a donation for the silent auction should contact event co-chair Donna Eul at (320) 324-2437 or drop the item off at

Federated Telephone's offices in Morris or Chokio. All proceeds go to

the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
