Clinton County Dems Kick Cancer

Clinton County Democrats looking for a way to give back to the community formed a Clinton County Relay For Life team to help raise funds for people impacted by cancer.

That’s how “Clinton County Dems Kick Cancer” came about!

During Relay For Life, an annual fundraiser walk that benefits the American Cancer Society, teams come together for 6-24 hours. Team members take turns walking around a designated path the entire time.

“Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we,” explains the American Cancer Society website.

Clinton County Relay For Life will take place on May 30, 2020, at Riverview Park, but many activities and fundraisers will lead up to that final event.


Team Co-Captains: Roxanne Embick & Lauri Schaitkin
