MASON CITY, IA – It’s an annual event to honor those who have been touched by cancer. It’s all part of the Relay for Life.
Volunteers were hard at work earlier today prepping for the nights events.
The relay involves teams who take turns walking or running around the track at North Iowa Area Community College.
All proceeds from pledges goes towards cancer research.
One volunteer says she has a very personal reason for being a part of the relay.
Relay for Life Co-Chair, Danielle Pace said, “My mother is a breast cancer survivor, as well as a few other family members, but most importantly, I lost my father 2 years ago. He was diagnosed with lung cancer and going through that experience was something I don’t wish on anybody and I felt there was something I could do to help fight back against that nasty disease.” >
This event is open to the public and there are plenty of activities for kids and adults alike.
The relay will finish at 1:00 AM.
