Plans for this year’s Relay For Life of Shelby County have been canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
“The quarantine has made plans for fundraising events difficult,” said county event lead Kathie Storm. “The committee has not been able to meet to plan the event or to do fundraising for it.”
The Survivor dinner was originally set for July, but because of the uncertainties involved in the state‘s reopening phases and discomfort of those who may still be considered high risk, Storm said the committee agreed to cancel the dinner for this year.
Storm noted that the work to fight cancer and services for cancer patients continue and donations to the American Cancer Society are still sought. Donations may be made using the website relayforlife.org/shelbyville or by sending checks to ACS c/o Kathie Storm, 633N 1400E Road, Lakewood IL 62438.
Teams may continue fundraising and turn in their donations online or submit to Storm.
