Relay For Life
Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. Help fight this disease one step at a time!
Kalamazoo County’s Relay for Life's theme this year was “Serving Up a Cure”. Carol Morris-Mier and Bekki Spanjer are co-chairing the WMU, PSSO & Friends team named “Serving it Up Western Style”. The event was held at Portage Central High School on May 31-June 1, 2014. This was not just a PSSO event, all were welcome to join. Luminaries were be available to purchase.
Our goal of $75,000 was surpassed and we raised $77,000. Thank you to all who donated their money and time to make this event such a great success.
Donations are still being accepted through August. For more information, contact Carol at 7-3475 or Bekki at 7-4721.
