Relay surpassed goal

To the Editor:

This year, the Faribault County Relay For Life committee set a goal of raising $100,000 for the first time in our county. The committee is proud to report that with the generous support of Faribault County it surpassed its goal, raising $103,458. The committee wishes to thank everyone who helped in any way to achieve this milestone.

Relay for Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people every year to …

o Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight.

o Remember loved ones lost to the disease.

o Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.

Consider making a commitment to saving lives by taking up the fight on Aug. 8, 2014, and be a part of the Faribault County 20th Annual Relay For Life.
