Kandiyohi County Relay for Life to become virtual event

Relay for Life

(Willmar MN-) Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the previously scheduled Relay For Life of Kandiyohi County will plan to host a virtual online event with the date to be determined at a later time.

The Relay For Life of Kandiyohi County will also be joining with Relay For Life events across Minnesota by participating in a statewide Stronger Together campaign from June 1 through August 1. The campaign will culminate with a virtual statewide celebration on August 1, to celebrate the fundraising happening across the state and to demonstrate that we are stronger together in the fight against cancer. Relay For Life is a celebration of unity, and the safety of our patients, survivors, volunteers and staff is our top priority.

“During this difficult time, cancer won’t stop, and neither will we,” said Sherri Maanum.

“Even though we cannot currently be face-to-face, we’re committed to continuing to fight cancer head-on and hope that you will stand together with us, even when we’re apart.”

Be part of the Relay For Life movement and continue to celebrate people who have been touched by cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action for lifesaving change. Join us virtually and continue the fight from home and be a part of the Relay For Life of Kandiyohi County.

The American Cancer Society’s mission matters more than ever. The needs of people facing cancer continue and so does our work. Cancer patients still need support during this crisis. Funds raised help the American Cancer Society to continue with cancer research, the 24/7 helpline, and for continuing services to get patients the care and support they need where we can.

Help continue to bring hope to those that need it most. Join your local Relay For Life virtually to help those facing cancer. Visit www.relayforlife.org/kandiyohimn for more information about this virtual event.
