Delaware County Relay for Life
June 27 @ 5:00 pm
The Delaware County Relay for Life will be held Friday, June 27th at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Manchester. This year’s event has a new shortened time from 5 pm to midnight. The Relay for Life honors and remembers those who have fought the battle with cancer, and they also raise money for the American Cancer Society. Opening ceremonies will be held at 7 pm, with entertainment throughout the night. There will be kids’ games, a Relay Store, a silent auction and a food stand. The public is encouraged to attend.
Cancer survivors are welcome to be part of the event Friday night, with a survivor celebration at 6 pm at the 4-H Food Stand. They are also given a free Survivor t-shirt. If you are a cancer survivor and would like to take part in the Relay for Life celebration, call Jill Goos at 927.2888.
Luminaries will also be lit in honor or in memory of those who have fought the battle with cancer. To purchase a luminary, call Cathy Lilienthal at 563.920.0205, stop by Blakesley Drug in Manchester, contact Carolyn Wilson at the Delaware County Treasurer’s Office or contact any Relay for Life board member. A suggested donation of $5 is requested for each luminary purchase. After you decorate your luminary, you can drop it off at Blakesley Drug or KMCH Radio through Thursday, June 26th.
