Tue 8-3-2021

(Lakefield) The Jackson County Relay for Life will be this Friday from 4 to 8 at the North City Park in Lakefield. Chair person Sarah Thompson says that despite having to change things due to covid they still had a successful event. Thompson cut 1 

“Considering the pandemic that we were in we were very pleased with our outcome. Just hoping this year will be a time of celebration with the pandemic getting less and being able to not have all those restrictions.”

Over $15,000 was raised in Jackson County last year and Thompson said they received good feedback from last year's event. Thompson cut 2 

“We actually had very good feedback last year with our event in Lakefield. Very nice location, the park makes it very nice with the shelter house there we can keep things more centrally located. People aren't having to walk a long ways and it just feels more like family. Just a more closer relationship of an event with everything right there.”

The event is this Friday from 4 to 8 at North City park in Lakefield. If you would like more information on this years event you can go to relayforlife.org/jacksonMN
