Bloomington, Illinois – June 23, 2018 – Relay For Life of McLean County wrapped up its annual event at The Corn Crib in Normal on Saturday, June 23 at 2p.m., having had team members circle a makeshift track on the stadium infield for 24 hours.

As this year’s event concluded Saturday, with a grant from State Farm Bank, our Relay For Life of McLean County ended having raised $255,315 toward its stated goal of $305,000, with money continuing to come in. And because Relay For Life of McLean County will end its fiscal year 2018 on August 31, teams will continue bringing in donations through that date which will help us to achieve that monetary goal of $305,000.

RELAY 2018 NUMBERS: Relay For Life of McLean County had 54 teams involving 405 registered team members and 400 survivors and caregivers at their annual Relay event. There were also hundreds of additional community members who visited the event and enjoyed the survivor dinner, “Fun Zone”, silent auction, live entertainment and other activities.

Since it began in McLean County in 1994, and including this year’s event-end amount, Relay For Life of McLean County has raised over $8.5 Million to fight cancer.

Of this year’s event, Catina Struble, Lead Co-Chair for Relay For Life of McLean County, said, “We are really proud of how engaged our teams were in preparing and participating in this year’s Relay. It shows the degree of commitment and dedication our team members have when it comes to help fight this disease. We are so grateful for the support of Normal Cornbelters and their gift of this beautiful venue.”
