Relay for Life is coming to Iron County

CRYSTAL FALLS—For the first time, the American Cancer Society Relay for Life is coming to Iron County. The event will be at Nelson Field on Saturday, June 27.
    The Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The relay is also a time for survivors and caregivers to come together and share their stories of inspiration.  The money raised supports lodging for cancer patients and caregivers, transportation to treatment appointments, make-up kits, wigs, and research.
     There will be an informational community day Wednesday from 3-7 p.m. at Fob’s Restaurant in Crystal Falls. The community is invited to attend to learn about the Relay For Life and the many ways to fight the battle against cancer together.
