Relay for Life Northern Lights at LUHS on July 31

May 01, 2020

American Cancer Society is calling on all community members to participate in the annual Relay For Life Northern Lights on Friday, July 31 at Lakeland Union High School in Minocqua. Be part of the fight and beat cancer. 

Rita Mazur, event lead for the Relay For Life event is looking forward to this year’s 26th annual event.  

“Each participant and donor to our event brings hope to those who are battling cancer or supporting a loved one with cancer.  While we remember those who have been lost to this disease, Relay is also a celebration of life and a way to make a difference to many in our community and beyond.” Teams can be formed by families, friends, co-workers, clubs, school students, churches or any other group that wants to get together in support of the American Cancer Society’s mission of work. 

Founded by Dr. Gordy Klatt in Tacoma, Washington, in 1985, Relay For Life events around the world have raised nearly $6.5 billion to help ACS attack cancer. Funds raised help ACS fund and conduct breakthrough research, and give cancer patients and their families the resources they need, like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support.

Last year’s Relay For Life Northern Lights raised more than $39,000 to help ACS fight cancer on every front. Fundraising is done year around, with the event being a celebration of life. Fundraising takes place throughout 2020 as well as the night of the event.
