Relay for Life 2021 Bates County


The annual Bates County Relay for Life for 2021 has been postponed until later this

summer or even into the fall.  The event is a community fundraiser for the American

Cancer Society.

Relay for Life 2020 was cancelled due to Covid-19.  This year’s event is pending the

approval of  the American Cancer Society and its commitment to public safety.  Local

organizers should hear early in July whether an actual outdoor Relay will be allowed,

or if  the event would have to done virtually (online).

In 2019 the Bates County Relay teams, participants and contributors raised over

$42,500 dollars to help fight cancer and promote cancer research.

That’s the 2021 Relay for Life, usually held in June on the Butler Square, postponed

at this time.  Even so, please be aware that corporate and individual contributions may be

made at any time.  Checks should be made payable to Bates County Relay for Life, and

may be dropped off at DSWA CPAs just off the Butler square.
