Relay for Life Hits All Time High

Congratulations to residents of the entire Three Rivers surrounding area for their superb
fundraising on behalf of the American Cancer Society. The 2015 Relay for Life event netted a
record high $140,396 for the ACS – the 13th highest revenue event in Michigan.
Teams from Three Rivers, Centreville, Mendon and Constantine held fundraisers and solicited
friends and family for donations. Event sponsors enabled us to have a fun-filled event without
using team contributions to fund activities. Thanks to all of you who made the Relay such a
huge success.
The 2016 Three Rivers Area Relay for Life will be a one day event Friday, June 24, from 3 pm
to 11 pm. Fourteen teams and 18 participants have already registered and begun fundraising.
Our first community-wide fundraiser is a disc golf tournament Oct. 24 at Meyer Park.
Registration is at www.discgolfscene.com.
In addition to teams, we are seeking committee members to help plan the 2016 Relay. Register
your team at www.relayforlife.org/threeriversmi. To join the committee, or if you need printed
registration materials, contact Mike Megyesi, ACS coordinator, at 269 349-8710, ext. 6130 or
Mary Dechow at (269) 244-5229
Remember, the services you help fund through your donations are there for everyone in our
communities. ACS has exceptional programs for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers. You
can access American Cancer Society information at www.cancer.org or call 1-800-227-2345.
Thanks again to everyone who made 2015 an amazing event!
2015 Leadership Team
Mary Fair Dechow, Amber Edson & Jenny Finnerman
