Relay For Life of Green County Goes Virtual

 

July 9, 2020



This year the Wisconsin Relay For Life events are going virtual, including the Relay for Life of Green County event, which was scheduled for July in Monroe.

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, we will “gather”, as one state, to celebrate using the American Cancer Society-Wisconsin Facebook page and provide hope to those fighting cancer to prove that ‘Hope Lives Here.’

COVID-19 has put cancer patients at risk - attacking already weakened immune systems, delaying cancer treatments, and closing many clinical trials. The American Cancer Society continues to provide services, support, coordinating rides, research and other support for cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers.

The Relay For Life of Green County will use the Facebook page - Relay For Life of Green County - to post a series of videos that feature our local Relay For Life teams, survivors who have registered, recognize our Honorary Survivor, Lisa Martin, and feature a virtual luminaria ceremony.

From 8:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m., on August 1st, we also will have a walk- and drive-by luminaria event at the Jaycee Park in Brodhead, showcasing the luminaria bags that people have purchased in memory or honor of loved ones.

The event organizers are asking cancer survivors to register on the website at http://www.RelayForLife.org/GreenCountyWI by July 15th so we can provide them with survivor shirts and include them in the virtual ceremony.

Luminaria bags also can be purchased online and donations can be made to teams, team members, or to the event using the website or forms posted on the website. The deadline for luminaria orders is Saturday, July 25, in order to complete the online presentation.

We are showcasing our event sponsors on the Facebook page and website.
