Have you gotten the chance to experience the Kickin’ Cancer in Redwood County event during the summer? Now is your time to mark your calendars for our 2024 fundraiser! The 4th Annual Kickin’ Cancer in Redwood County event will be held on August 16, 2024 from 4:30pm to 10:00pm at the Gilfillian Estates in Morgan, Minnesota.
What is this event?
Formerly Relay for Life, this Kickin’ Cancer in Redwood County event is held to bring together people whose lives have been touched by cancer. We use this time to celebrate life as well as other cancer survivors and raise funds to help people get through their cancer battles.
The event is kicked off with survivor registration followed by an opening ceremony.
Ways you can participate in the event:
- Attend and join in on the fun!
About the Organization
Kickin’ Cancer Support is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and a subsidiary of the Redwood Area Communities Foundation. Our mission is to provide assistance to cancer patients with funds raised and distributed locally throughout Redwood County.
Kickin’ Cancer has a volunteer board of directors and many volunteers. Being residents of Redwood County and knowing firsthand the difficulties that cancer can bring to your life, beyond the treatments, we raise money locally and spend it locally. Our organization provides assistance to cancer patients through Blessings Bags and the Financial Assistance Program. We want our neighbors to know that they are not alone in this fight.
Bring Your Kids
Just like in years past, we welcome everyone including your children! At the 3rd Annual Kickin’ Cancer in Redwood County event, we had popcorn, games, kids train rides, kids grab bags, ice cream, petting zoo and Clowns Flapjack and Cupcake. We’re currently planning for similar, family fun activities for the 2024 event! People of all ages enjoy taking part in the luminaries walk and the butterfly release as well. Come out for fun for all ages!
