Relay for Life 2015 Kickoff Meeting :: Wednesday, March 11

For anyone interested in learning more about Relay for Life and the event scheduled for April 18 at ICC, please join me and others for a quick meeting on March 11 from 11:30-12:30 in the Tranquility Room on the East Peoria Campus.  Bring your lunch, and learn about this great event that helps support the American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer.

The event is scheduled from 4 to 10 pm on April 18, and will include an opening ceremony honoring cancer survivors and cancer patient caregivers, followed by the walk and entertainment provided by The Skaz Band, a local area group.  At nightfall, the luminaria ceremony will honor and remember our loved ones and friends that have battled this horrible disease.  Even if you are not interested in participating in the walk, please consider donating to this cause or purchasing a luminaria so your loved one can be honored at this event.  Donations go towards research, patient and caregiver services, supplying free wigs to cancer patients, providing transportation services to patients so they can make it to appointments and many other great services.

If you’re interested in joining the team, registering a survivor for recognition at the event, or purchasing a luminaria to honor a loved one at the event, please visit the link below and join me in this fight against cancer on April 18.
