ALBERT LEA, MN — It’s a gathering full of survivors and providing hope to those still in a battle with cancer.

The Relay for Life of Freeborn County will host more than 400 cancer survivors and their families for an ice cream social tonight.

Organizers tell us the event allows them to bring all of these survivors together, to share stories and inspire others in their fight.

“It’s just a nice time to gather everybody and to honor our survivors and help them through their journey,” Co-Chair of the Relay for Life of Freeborn County Vicki Manges said. “I think having people together gives people more hope.”

The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Fairlane Building on the Freeborn County Fairgrounds.
