Relay for Life team thankful

Our Relay for Life team, The Patriots, would like to thank everyone who attended our Smashing Cancer Pumpkin Run, Walk Oct. 19 at the Marquette Park in Savanna. This was our first run and walk, and the turnout was amazing, with 77 people signing up and raising $1,400.

This fundraiser for the American Cancer Society’s 2014 Relay for Life would not have been a successful event without the public’s attendance, and sponsorships from CenturyLink, J.C. Carey Motors, FHN, Savanna-Thomson State Bank, Cornerstone Chiropractic, Kunes Country Auto Group, Nicole Thulen (independent director of Thirty-One Gifts), Brad Deery Motors Inc., David Purlee, D.D.S., Law-Jones Funeral Home, Mount Carroll Mirror-Democrat, Savanna Times-Journal, Casey’s General Store, the Cordell family, and Jewel Osco.

We also would like to thank Jim Rogers, Chuck Rogers, BSD Printing, the Savanna Park District, and the Savanna Police Department for all their help.

Of course, the event would not be any fun without door prizes donated by Donna Althoff (independent sales director for Pampered Chef), Flower Fan-A-See, Teresa Duggan (Scentsy family as independent Scentsy consultant), and Christiene Gable (independent beauty consultant at Mary Kay).

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing the suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy and service.

Again, thank you, and hope to see you next year.
