Relay for Life program and the Covid-19 virus

Northern Lights

N.E. MI – Due to a decline in participation in the Relay for Life program and the Covid-19 virus, passionate volunteers from Crawford and Roscommon County made the decision to try something new in 2020.

The “Northern Lights of Hope Project” has stepped up with plans to host several independent events throughout the year to celebrate lives, remember lives and to fight back in the name of cancer patients everywhere.

With the communities help and because there is not any relay in  Crawford or Roscommon County, teams such as “Families Against Cancer” decided to collect cans again because the American Cancer Society  is so down on donations because of Covid-19 they need all the help they can get, also because of all the  patients who have cancer and all the new cases, they still need donations for program’s to help them and for new technology and research and cures.

There are many more survivors then there used to be, but we still have a long way to go. If you can help in any way contact Rose Mary Nelson or Wayne Nelson 989-348-2985.
