Brown Co Relay for Life Friday
06/14/2018

(KNZA)--The Brown County Courthouse Square in downtown Hiawatha will again be the site for the Relay for Life of Brown County, set for Friday evening.

The theme this year is “ Paint the Square Purple.”

The event is a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.

The Survivor Meal will start the evening’s celebration of hope, starting at 5:00 at the Eternal Hope Family Life Center, located at 424 Oregon Street.  

The Relay For Life kicks off about 7:00 with the National Anthem, followed by the Survivor’s Lap around the courthouse square. This year’s event promises fun activities that include vendors, a pin-up contest and a car show, along with the teams walking to raise money to fight cancer.

The luminaria ceremony will be at 9:30 on the north side of the courthouse. Each luminaria represents a loved one lost to cancer, brings support to those affected by it and honors survivors.

Also as part of this year’s event, will be the 2nd annual “Miss Survivor” pin-up contest. The public is invited to take part in the fun at a cost of  $1 to vote for your favorite.

Also in conjunction with the Relay For Life will be the 2nd Annual Survivor Awarded Car Show, on the east side of the courthouse square. There will be recognition of the top car, truck and motorcycle and an overall grand prize plaque awarded.
