Floyd Co. Relay for Life Raises Money for Cancer Research

The American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life of Floyd County” continues through Friday (6.25).

Event Co-Chair Jan Adams says donations will support cancer research to fight a disease that hits closer than many realize.

Like last year, the 2021 relay is again being conducted largely virtually due to COVID-19 safety concerns. However, Adams adds that instead of the normal one-night relay event, they now get five days to raise donations, but they definitely took a financial hit in 2020.

While donations to support cancer research can be made online, Adams says Hy-Vee, Fareway and McDonalds in Charles City also present special opportunities to contribute to the cause..Donations can also be dropped off at First Citizens Bank in Charles City or in collection buckets available at various businesses throughout the county.
