Tuesdays 6 p.m.: May 12 (AT MCCOLLUM PARK PAVILLION) and June 9 at the Downers Grove Public Library (Conference Room A) Parking can be tight, so allow extra time. If the library lot is full, you can park along any of the side streets and walk over.

New for 2015!

Relay For Life will end at midnight so more people can participate. Enjoy all of the traditional heartwarming and fun Relay activities, but wrap up early enough to carry on with the rest of your weekend. We will also move the event to McCollum Park (Main Street, Downers Grove between 63rd and 75th Street.)  

The Downers Grove Park District is donating the space, so we can use more donor dollars to end cancer as a threat to our loved ones!

Thank You 2015 Event Sponsors...
