The Relay for Life event is held annually each August at the Carver County Fairgrounds in Waconia. The focus of this event is to bring the community together in the fight against cancer by helping to raise funds for the research necessary to find a cure for cancer. This family oriented event features recognition and remembrance ceremonies, music and entertainment, food vendors, information regarding cancer, and an overnight walking relay. The Waconia Lions Club helps support this annual event in the following ways:
- We are an event sponsor, helping to defray costs associated with holding the event by providing an upfront monetary donation to organizers.
- We are a team sponsor, forming and funding a relay team made up of club members and their families.
- Occasionally being a food vendor, providing the proceeds of our sales to event organizers as an additional monetary donation.
If you are interested in participating in this great event, be sure to regularly check our website or Facebook page for notifications regarding the official date in August!
