Bark For Life Meeting


Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

First Meeting of the 2016 Season


Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our 2015 Relay For Life of Boone County! 

We are truly grateful for your continued support!


We are at 68% to our goal of $55,000!

That is $950 a team or $121 a participant. While that seems hefty, every dollar raised helps us get closer to our goal. $100 could give a cancer patient a free wig or give 10 cancer patients a ride to treatment.

We are so excited that you joined the fight against cancer in Boone County! Please remember that you can continue to turn in donations until August 31st, 2015 and they can be counted towards your fundraising goal!


Our Wrap Up Meeting will be on Wednesday, June 17th at 6:00pm at the Boone County Fairgrounds Administration Building, all team members are welcome to attend!


CONGRATS to our Relay For Life Event, we have received the honor of being an ACS CAN CLUB EVENT for the First Year! We also have to ACS CAN CLUB TEAMS, Prairie Grange Cancer Kickers (2nd year) and Team Schultz (1st Year)

We are the 2nd ACS CAN CLUB EVENT in the Northern Region and the 11th ACS CAN CLUB EVENT in Illinois!




Don’t forget to check your email if you raised over $250 individually, certificates will begin to be emailed within 12 days of our event.
