On behalf of the Lima Relay For Life, we want to say a heartfelt thanks to the Lima, Bluffton and Allen County communities for their support of the Relay For Life.
On June 13 and 14, and on June 27 and 28, both the Lima and Bluffton communities held Relay For Life activities. Hundreds of cancer survivors, caregivers and businesses came together for one important cause: to fight cancer in our community. From their wonderful efforts, we’ve raised over $115,000 and counting!
In Lima, we celebrated our 20th anniversary of our Relay! From the 20 years that Lima and Allen County has been fighting cancer, we’ve raised an amazing $1.6 million to help fight cancer!
The money we’ve raised has been used to support cancer research, education and prevention activities. The American Cancer Society has funded 47 Nobel Prize winners in cancer research. Through these efforts, many lives have been saved and improved for people in our community.
Thanks to our committee, teams and businesses who supported the Relay, we couldn’t do it without you.
Thank you Lima, Bluffton and Allen County, it’s about communities that take up the fight against cancer. Together we will finish the fight with your support.
