Chickasaw Relay For Life
August 4 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This year we are bringing the Relay back to Mikkelson Park on Thursday night, August 4, 2022. We are going to kick things off with the Survivor Meal at 5:00 pm, followed by the Community Meal at 5:30 pm. Brauts, chips, baked beans, cookies, and drinks will be served for a free will donation. The Opening Ceremony will be at 6:00 pm with music to follow. The Luminary Ceremony will be held at 7:30 pm with the Closing Ceremony at 8:00 pm.
The committee is hoping the community comes out for the meal, and stays for our Ceremony and Luminary event to remember and honor family and friends who have battled cancer. With a suggested $10 donation per name, a Luminaria will be placed along the Relay For Life pathway to memorialize or honor someone you love. A personal message can be added to the Luminaria along with the individual’s name.
Luminaria bags are available for pickup at First Citizens Bank New Hampton. Donations can be made at www.relayforlife.org/chickasawcountyia or dropping it off with Jill Fibikar at First Citizens Bank. You may also contact Barb Havlik at email@example.com to have a luminary bag decorated for you.
