2019 Ralls County Relay for Life Seeks Sponsors and Participants

March 21, 2019

The Ralls County Relay for Life Event Committee has been meeting for the past several months gearing up for the 2019 Ralls Co. Relay for Life Event which is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, 2019 at the Mark Twain High School. Each team has been having activities to raise funds to help meet the 2019 goal. Plans begin for the next year’s Relay for Life event when the current Relay year ends. These activities are ongoing.

The Relay for Life Event is a celebration of life for the survivors and a way to help raise funds to work toward achieving the vision of freeing the world of the pain and suffering of cancer. The funds are used to provide support to people in the community impacted by this disease through nutritional supplement, free lodging while receiving treatment and/or help with mileage, as well as assisting with educational programs and funds used to help with research to find a cure.

The community plays a big role in this endeavor. Individuals and businesses are asked to be a sponsor for the event. Their donations go toward helping meet the overall goal. The sponsors will be recognized in multiple ways at the event, through individual posters with their name listed, each sponsor will be awarded a certificate as their name is announced, and a special Sponsor Relay Lap. We need your support. Be a sponsor for the Ralls County Relay for Life Event on April 27, 2019.
