What a wonderful weather evening for the Dell Rapids Relay for Life on Friday, July 27!
The Planning Committee tells us that 50-60 cancer survivors walked in the Survivor Walk at 6:00pm, with twelve teams registered for the walk. But many who came to eat at the Boy Scout Whopper Feed and hear the wonderful entertainment also took time to stroll and view the nearly 1550 luminaries lining the walkway. The many luminaries were decorated in memory of loved ones, honoring survivors, or encouraging those still fighting. And during the evening, attendees could also partake in a game of Plinko, eat popcorn, cool off with a DQ Dilly Bar, have a slice of Pizza Ranch Pizza, or purchase raffle tickets to take a chance at winning one of the 66 raffle prizes donated by area businesses and individuals. Seventeen local businesses, who donated $250-$500, were listed on the back of the white Relay T-shirts.
With donations totaling over $25,000, the Planning Committee would like to thank the community for their generous support and participation.
