Relay For Life Results


August 13, 2020

The 2020 O’Brien County Relay For Life drew ten teams and raised $16,672.00 for the American Cancer Society’s advocacy, education, patient services, and research programs. The event was held in Sheldon on Monday, August 3 with a different look this year due to COVID 19 rules and social distancing. Instead of the usual walk to raise funds, a picnic and parade were held from 5:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M..

Take-and-go meals were served to individuals at the Sheldon City Park gazebo. Twenty-two survivor members assembled at the Sheldon High School parking lot for a short program and drive by past Fieldcrest, Christian Retirement Home, and down the traditional parade route. Many cars were decorated with loved one’s information about their fight against cancer. The public gave them their support as they drove by. Three hundred forty-one luminarias were on display at the enclosed shelter house in the park.

Cindy Runger, chairman, would like to thank businesses and individuals

of O’Brien County and the surrounding area for their generous support. Our event would not be possible if we didn’t have the many volunteer hours donated by everyone.
