2012 Cass County Relay for Life a Great Success


June 22nd, 2012 by Chris Parks

The 2012 Cass County Relay for Life took place Friday night (6/22) at the Atlantic High School Track.  A beautiful evening accommodated a large crowd that came out for a night of celebrating survivors, remembering loved ones lost, and fighting back against cancer.

Teams and committee members work throughout the year to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer.  This year’s effort in Cass County raised an impressive $68,880.08 to date with more donations still coming in.

A tractor ride started the day for Relay for Life with 44 tractors on the ride.  A motorcycle ride took place later in the day and the survivor’s dinner began at 4:30pm.  The Survivor’s lap kicked off the festivities on the track.  The crowd was able to enjoy entertainment on the infield stage, children’s activities throughout the night, and an education tent along with strolling around the track.  The luminary ceremony wound down the night supporting those with cancer and remembering those lost.

The Cass County Relay for Life committee would like to thank all of the area businesses and residents that supported the Relay effort and helped make it a great success.
