Due to the uncertainty of when participants would be able to assemble in a large group again in Illinois and the fact that many survivors have immune systems that are compromised, the Relay For Life of Sauk Valley is being postponed until the fall in September or October. It will not be held on June 6 th . The Survivor Dinner has also been postponed from May 14 th to the fall prior to the Relay For Life event.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society main fundraising event and those needs continue, even in the pandemic. Cancer may attack anyone of any age, race, sex, and residency. Funds support research, education, patient services, and advocacy of cancer patients and survivors of all cancers.
Participants in the 2020 event of Relay For Life of Sauk Valley may continue to register online at www.relayforlife.org/saukvalleyil and seek donations. Survivors may also register at this website.
