The caring and generous community of McPherson County shined at Relay For Life again this year! The event began with the opening ceremony on Friday, June 3rd at 6:00 p.m. Survivors in attendance were announced along with the teams that participated and raised money for the cause. Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC has two cancer survivors that were honored at the event, LaQuita Geis and Marie Shields. SJHL has organized a team almost every year since the event has been in McPherson. SJHL team members walked through the night and kept our relay going until the end of the event on Saturday morning. Many SJHL friends and family also attended to show their support. This year SJHL raised $3,823.79, which far exceeds any amount we have raised in past years. Since we raised over $3,500, we are now in the "Silver" Team Fundraising Club Level, which is a huge honor! Thank you to everyone who participated in Relay For Life. We look forward to joining you again next year! Please scroll down to see more pictures from Relay For Life at Wall Park.
