The Relay For Life of Milan was held at Wilson Park in Milan on August 17th and 18th, 2019. This year’s event was a huge success! There was fabulous weather which allowed all 12 teams on site to Relay safely and comfortably for 24 hours. There were 14 teams total and 172 registered participants. The event featured a silent auction, dunk tank, BBQ from Papa G’s, a breakfast honoring cancer survivors- made by Zilke Farm Kitchen, coffee from Life is Sweet and sponsored by Digital Brewery-, a Tae Kwon Do demonstration and a Milan Code Red Robotics demonstration along with lots of other fun things for the family to see and do. Over 40 survivors attended. Although fundraising is still ongoing, at the end of event the Relay for Life of Milan had raised over $43,000! The teams are excited to Relay again next year and welcome new participants and teams to join the fun and the fight! Next year’s event is planned for August 22nd and 23rd, 2020.
