Dyersville Area Relay for Life Raises Over $130,000

The Dyersville Area Relay for Life didn’t just reach their goal Friday night… they blew it out of the water.

The annual event has raised over $130,000 – about $20,000 above their goal.

Relay Committee Co-Chair Cindy Willenborg says they are absolutely thrilled.

And while the total is high, it’s not quite a record – she says the Dyersville Area Relay for Life raised $140,000 a few years back when she previously served on the committee. This year’s event incorporated some new activities like a car show and big screen movie in hopes of bringing out more people, with the traditional luminary ceremony and survivors ceremony still held too.

And Willenborg says they welcome new ideas as they look ahead to next year.
