5:30 p.m. Opening Ceremony
6:00 p.m. Team Recognition

Today was the original date for the in-person Relay For Life, which is why it was chosen as the date for the virtual event.
Suzanne Mages, Relay For Life senior community development manager for southwest Iowa, reminded individuals, “Cancer has not stopped and neither can we.”
Mages would like to be able organize an in-person event sometime later this year, but for the present, she encouraged everyone to support the virtual event because cancer patients still need the programs and services the funds raised by Relay For Life help provide.
