  • The Yellow Medicine County Relay For Life committee would like to express our appreciation for the support shown by our communities for the American Cancer Society!  Many of you were there (at the Relay For Life) to enjoy the activities provided by each team, eat some great food and of course, walk the track and pay tribute to cancer survivors and those who have lost the battle to cancer. Thank you to the 5K Run for Life participants and the 15 teams (plus 1 virtual team) that participated in this year’s event. These teams had fundraised about $25,000 prior to the Relay event and another $13,000 on Friday night!!
    Special thanks to the businesses/individuals that provided a financial donation (especially our $1000 sponsors), food products, a service or silent auction items. A special thank you to the Silent Auction crew handling 10 tables of items! There are too many to name – but know that we are so grateful!  We also want to thank all of entertainers – Eric Grieger for his DJ Service and the Lighter Side Clowns for entertaining the young folk!
    Another special thank you to the city of Clarkfield for all they do to help us in preparation and management of the event at the athletic field. Thank you to the Clarkfield Lions for putting on the pork dinner! You are all very much appreciated!  
    Our committee is committed to continue the Relay For Life event to support the American Cancer Society.  We challenge and encourage the teams from this year to continue their participation and for the past teams, to please reconsider joining in again, and for new teams to begin in this important journey to fight cancer. The monies raised for the American Cancer Society aid them in their mission to help us stay well, get well, find a cure for cancer and fight back against it.  We intend to finish the fight!
