"Don't Gamble with Cancer" is the theme in Brown County for 2013 Relay for Life event. Our journey to end cancer starts with a single step. We invite you to come take that first step with us on June 7th @ Gordon Wood stadium @ 7pm-7am. It's the final count down, a month away and so much to get done. We have enjoyed and appreciated all the local businesses' donations, help with fundraising, spreading the word and being a great part of making this event happen.
*We still have room for TEAMS, VOLUNTEERS, SPONSORSHIP AND MORE! Contact us or register on-line.
*We are pumped about all the new Activities and Games our creative team came up with to include everyone of all ages
