Citizens Bank Minnesota’s Relay for Life Team was hard at work throughout the past year raising money for the fight against cancer right here in Brown County. Through a variety of fundraisers, including potlucks, a 5K walk/run, a crafters’ retreat, an employee Silent Auction and donations from friends and family, the Citizens team continues to contribute sizable donations to the American Cancer Society every year. This year we raised $20,699.50, putting us in first place in the county. Citizens has been part of Relay for 21 years, with total contributions at $219,546.22.
The money raised through Relay events helps with education, prevention, treatment, and support for all cancer survivors and patients. A large portion of the money raised in Brown County stays in Brown County, helping our neighbors and friends when they need it most. At our local Relay event, we celebrate all cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and learn how each of us can do more to fight back against this dreaded disease.
If cancer could be cured by energy, commitment and determination, we’d be done with it and no one would ever have to fear this disease again!
