Organizers for the 20th annual "Relay for Life" event in Rochelle will hold their luminary ceremony this Friday evening starting with activities at 8. The event will take place at the Helms Athletic Complex.
Rain on Saturday prevented the completion of the Relay. Some refreshments will be served and other activities will take place at 8 prior to the luminary ceremony at 9. They will be placed around the track at the Helms Athletic Complex as area residents remember individuals who have cancer or lost their battle from the disease.
Luminaries will be sold until 8:30 on Friday evening.
$31,288 has been raised so far for the American Cancer Society. Organizers hope additional donations will be coming in the near future.
