Relay For Life In Okawville June 24

The Washington County Relay for Life will be held in Okawville, IL at the Community Park on Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 4:00 to 10:00 PM.

The Relay committee is still looking for more teams to add to the excitement and success of the Relay. A team can be any group, organization, school, class, family, friends, or anyone who just wants to help in the fight against cancer.

There is no minimum dollar amount needed to be considered a “team.”
