Dyersville Area Relay for Life Raises Over $128,000

The fundraising totals are in for this year’s Dyersville Area Relay for Life.

Over $128,000 was raised, which will all go to the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.

This year’s Relay was virtual, though there was a food truck last Friday at Beckman, along with a radiothon and luminaries on display and online. Those events, along with daffodil and cupcake sales, sponsorships and donations, raised more than $25,000.

And the annual Midwest Pride In Your Ride truck and tractor show held a month ago at Tri-State Raceway in Earlville brought in nearly $104,000 – bringing the Relay’s overall total to over $128,000.

Teams will continue to fundraiser throughout the year, including some garage sale fundraisers going on this weekend in Dyersville.

And anyone still wishing to donate can mail a check to Relay for Life ATTN: Cindy Willenborg CARQUEST-Dyersville 805 13th Ave SE Dyersville, IA 52040 or you can donate online at relayforlife.org/dyersvilleia.

Committee member Cindy Willenborg would like to give a shout-out to all the sponsors and everyone with Midwest Pride In Your Ride – she says the Dyersville Area Relay for Life would not be what it is without all of the generous community support.
