Letter To The Editor - Relay For Life

Relay for Life Committee Online and Ceremonies Chair


To the Editor:

The LaGrange County Relay for Life Committee would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful community in its support of our event and all those who battle cancer. The annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society was a huge success, raising over $54,000. The money raised will go toward continuing research as well as support programs such as Look Good...Feel Better, Patient Navigator, Road to Recover, and the toll-free support line, 1-800-227-2345. This number is available to anyone with cancer questions, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

There were a number of individuals and businesses that contributed to this event, and we appreciate all of you so much.

We want to especially thank the LaGrange Community Band, Boy Scouts Pack 3764, American Legion Post 215, Girl Scouts, Joy Sharp, Jen Will, Mongo Community Development, Pamela Miltner, Pure Energy and DJ's James Orth and Mike Bailey, Shipshewana Furniture Company, our guest MCs, and our entertainers, Matt and Jason Band, Lush Crutch, Stagehog, and Spectre.

We had over 60 businesses and organizations sponsor track signs and 20 event sponsors. We thank you for celebrating with our 119 survivors, remembering those we have lost to this disease, and being a community willing to take up the fight against cancer.

Mark your calendars for June 22-23, 2013 and make plans to join us again!
